Under the direction of the supervising teacher, the successful candidate will provide support for students as required by their Individual Education Plans.  Experience in addressing the needs of special needs students is preferred.  Job description is available the application site.  Other responsibilities may be assigned by the building principal.

Do you want to change the landscape of what school looks like? Are you uncomfortable with traditional school approaches and endless complaints about the good old days? Come to Finneytown! 

Here at Finneytown, we are different. We are working hard to create more collaborative experiences for students through the use of Responsive Classroom and Restorative Practices.  As a staff, we gather in circles, using liberating structures such as Open Space and World Café.  We focus on approaching challenges through an appreciative, rather than deficit-based, lens. 

If you are a person who prefers to “close your door and do your own thing,” we may not be the place for you.  We focus on finding creative solutions to challenges and growing Project-Based Learning in our classrooms.  We value innovative thinking and the desire to continuously get better.

We’ll be honest, working at Finneytown Local School District isn’t for everybody, but if you are seeking the opportunity to try new ways of doing school and are committed to taking care of all people, then apply now!

Daily schedule will be 9:00am – 3:30pm  (6 hours paid; ½ hour unpaid lunch).

Employee will be required to maintain an Educational Aide Permit issued by the Ohio Department of Education.

Compensation will be in accordance with the F.A.S.P. Master Negotiated Agreement, currently $16.09 – $17.01 per hour, based on experience.

Satisfactory BCI and FBI background checks are required.

Starting date: August 30, 2022
