Stipend Opportunities for Staff


We are seeking EPS teachers to staff our Acceleration Academies for students in grades 3-8 during the February and April vacations. We are looking for both academic teachers and enrichment teachers! Please see descriptions and links to apply below. 

Teachers will support academic learning during February and April vacation weeks as part of our Acceleration Academy programming. We will run 2 academies per grade per school - one focused on ELA and one focused on Math to accelerate student learning. We will try our best to pair you with the grade you teach at the school you teach. The final decision will be made based on enrollment and need. 

In addition, we are excited to build in enrichment activities as a critical component. EPS needs specialists to provide enrichment programming from 9 to 11 a.m. and 12 to 2 p.m. on a variety of topics during February and April vacation weeks. Creativity is encouraged — yoga, art, robotics, filmmaking, basketball, lego engineering, dance, music, theater or any other programming you feel excited to lead students in hands-on, active learning.

In addition, Everett High School is offering Math and ELA Acceleration Academies during the February and April vacations



Everett High School’s Day 6 Program is seeking a guidance counselor. Day 6 is a Saturday/night program that aims to re-engage students who have dropped out of EHS. The counselor will work directly with our Re-Engagement Specialist in a variety of ways to help the program expand and flourish.
