Alternative Day School Support Specialist – La Crosse

We are seeking individuals to work in our Alternative Day School as Support Specialist. The Day School offers an alternative to public school for students whose needs are difficult to meet in traditional public school classrooms, even with supports and modifications. Students who enroll at Catholic Charities may display challenging behaviors due to mental health needs, experienced trauma, Attachment Reaction Disorder or a diagnosis of developmental disability in the Autism Spectrum. Students may also have associated medical issues such as a seizure disorder that can complicate the education program.

The Day School is separated into elementary, middle and high school rooms. Students participate in an approved core curriculum, as well as art and gym classes. Class sizes are very small, allowing much individual attention by licensed special education teachers and well trained classroom support staff.

Ideal candidates will possess prior experience working with individuals with mental health and/or substance abuse issues and/or individuals with developmental disabilities.

For immediate consideration, please fill out an application online and attach your resume and cover letter.
