We’re in the thick of summer now, but if you’re looking to get placed in a top school district next year the competition might be heating up while you’re working on your tan.
Located in Northern Colorado, about 50 miles outside Denver, Weld County School District 6 serves Greeley and Evans communities. The district recently announced a “better than expected” outcome for funding and no increase in class size along with salary increases for teachers. How’s that for a summertime gift? Property values have seen recent record growth, and Greeley is home to the Union Colony Civic Center, which is one of the largest performing arts venues in the state. GEAR UP stands for Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs and is a U.S. Department of Education grant program designed to increase the number of low-income students who are prepared to enter and succeed in post-secondary education. The district prides itself on celebrating diversity through cultural events and is looking for school psychologists who have similar values to join the team.
Only about 40 miles from Washington, DC, and 80 miles from Richmond, Virginia, Fauquier County Schools student population is a little more than 11,000 students and includes 11 elementary schools, five middle schools, three high schools and one alternative learning school. While the area has been in the news recently for bear and mountain lion sightings, there’s nothing to be fearful about joining this exceptional district as a school psychologist. An important school partner is Fauquier Excellence in Education, which was created to enrich educational opportunities for the schools through funding off-campus activities and cultivating relationships with regional corporations.
