We're Hiring

We are looking for highly motivated professionals who will empower all students with an excellent education. We are currently hiring for various teacher, school leader, and home office positions.

As a Partnership teacher, you will receive all the benefits of being an LAUSD employee. In addition, Partnership teachers have access to professional development opportunities, coaching and training above and beyond what is traditionally available in district settings. For those seeking to take the next step in leadership without leaving the classroom, our network-wide teacher leader programs are unparalleled in their support of future leaders.

As a Partnership teacher leader I not only have access to additional resources and professional development opportunities, but I have the privilege of collaborating with amazingly passionate and likeminded educators from across the network. When we come together, we form a dynamic educational think tank that never ceases to push my thinking, add skills to my toolbox and improve my classroom practice.
