As a key contributor to the school’s RTI system, the Interventionist will administer screenings and assessments; deliver Tier II and Tier III interventions; monitor student progress; contribute to shared data systems, and attend data meetings.

For this specialized position, LEEP Academy seeks candidates with experience teaching students in a small-group context. Training in math instruction and phonics (e.g. Orton-Gillingham, Fundations) is desirable. Fluency in English and Spanish is required.
