      Opening in fall 2004, OASIS will provide a rigorous education for
      teens, 14-18 years of age, who have dropped out of Oakland's
      traditional public schools. OASIS will enroll up to 400 young people
      beginning with 60-80 students in 2004-05.

      OASIS seeks full- and part-time teachers in the subject areas of
      English, Math, Science, Social Studies, Visual or Performing Arts and
      Physical Fitness and Health. Ideal candidates will have:
      • a single-subject teaching credential (or multiple single-
      subject credentials)
      • at least 3 years of teaching experience in an urban high
      school
      • a proven track record of improving student outcomes
      • experience using multiple instructional approaches such as
      group facilitation, project-based learning, independent study,
      service-learning, and computer-based learning
      • the ability to lead and to work collaboratively with others
      • energy and enthusiasm for working with traditionally
      underserved high school students
      • dedication, patience and flexibility necessary to launch a
      successful charter school
      • a desire for professional development using inquiry and
      critical reflection

      Teachers will have significant responsibility and decision-making
      authority over curriculum and instruction. Teachers will work
      collaboratively with the school director on curriculum planning,
      scheduling, student assessment and professional development.
      Teaching methods will be flexible and build upon the strengths and
      interests of teachers as well as students. Founding teachers will
      have input on the hiring decisions of new teachers. In addition to
      teaching classes, teachers will advise 10-15 students. Founding
      teachers also will have a unique opportunity to help shape an
      exciting learning environment in Oakland.

      We are strongly committed to hiring a diverse and multicultural
      staff, and offer competitive salaries and benefits.

      OASIS has received a $450,000 grant from the State to open its
      school, and has just submitted its charter petition to the Oakland
      Unified School District.
