DPS is issuing a call for qualified summer school teachers for the 2013 Detroit Public Schools Summer School Academy

Detroit Public Schools is issuing a call for qualified summer school teachers in the core content areas of homeroom, math, science, social studies and English Language Arts.

Aligning with the district’s strategic plan, the 2013 Detroit Public Schools Summer School Academy will be held June 18-July 26 with programs targeted to attract students from outside of the district in need of Credit Recovery courses and a Pre-Kindergarten Transitions Program to provide enrichment activities to students prior to entering kindergarten.

“We must think of creative new methods to help our students succeed, both academically and socially,” said Karen Ridgeway, Superintendent of Academics for Detroit Public Schools. “In areas where we see students lacking, we have to get them on track to catch up with their peers and ensure they’re prepared for graduation and post-secondary options. And not only will we work harder and smarter to better educate the students that we have, we must grow the district and open our Summer Programs to prospective students as well.”

Teachers will work 4.5 hours per day. Teachers report June 17, 2013. Students report on June 18. The salary range is $32.50 hourly.

Interested applicants must apply to the summer school job posting online at www.detroitk12.org under the Business/Careers section of the DPS homepage to have their name added to the eligibility pool for consideration.


Applicants must possess and provide proof of valid Michigan Teaching Certificate or Michigan Temporary Teaching Authorization (T2EA) with an endorsement in K-5 ALL SUBJECTS or K-8 SELF CONTAINED; and possess a Bachelor’s Degree from an institution accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools or an equivalent agency.
