”After a certain high level of technical skill is achieved, science and art tend to coalesce in esthetics, plasticity and form. The greatest scientists are artists as well.” – Albert Einstein
Now Accepting Resumés
Envision’s student body is growing, and we are looking to expand our administrative team, teaching staff, and support personnel. We will offer grades K–7 for the 2015-2016 academic school year. We are currently accepting resumés for several positions, thus creating a pool of candidates for our interview process which will begin February 2015. Click on the Careers tab to view job descriptions for the various opportunities.
2015-2016 Enrollment and Open House
Information regarding 2015-2016 enrollment and admissions is now available, although the enrollment process will not begin until January 24, 2015.
Open house events and tours will be scheduled for late fall and early winter, prior to the lottery. Tours are not currently available during the school day as they disrupt instructional time and present a security issue. Sign up to receive emails regarding the latest enrollment information.
Design Challenge Fair
Yearbook planning is underway and we'd like you to send pictures from school events (starting with Spirit Week) to email@example.com and include the grade, class, and name of student, whenever possible. **We will not use candid photos of children if a "photograph opt out" form was submitted.**
Volunteering and Substitute Teaching
When volunteering, we must insist that you maintain the strictest confidence with information gained through interactions with students and teachers. In the course of their time at ESA, volunteers and substitute teachers may become aware of information about the school and specific students, which may include such information as their academic performance, behavior, health, disabilities and related matters. By volunteering, participants must agree to not disclose or discuss any information about students, except with school employees who have a need to know. Please print and complete the volunteer/substitute confidentiality agreement at http://www.envisionscienceacademy.com/yahoo_site_admin/assets/docs/Volunteer_Confidentiality_Agreement.282160620.pdf and return it to the front office prior to your next volunteering or substitute teaching experience.
If you are interested in volunteering or substituting, please complete a background check at http://www.envisionscienceacademy.com/parents/volunteering. Also, if you are interested in being a substitute teacher, please email Mr. Pond at firstname.lastname@example.org.
