WHY CHOOSE EQ
As you seek a school and an organization to call home, we are excited to share what makes us unique. EQ is a nonprofit organization in search of professionals who are committed to Detroit. As an organization, our focus is on providing our staff with everything needed to be successful, including comprehensive and competitive benefits and targeted support structures.
We’re looking forward to another great year focusing on breakthrough results for our students and working with YOU!
EQUITY offers one of the most competitive all-in compensation packages in the City of Detroit. Because our Talent is the driving force behind our student achievement and school outcomes, we believe in rewarding our hard-working staff for their tenacity, commitment, and IMPACT.
Work/Life Balance has always been and continues to be of high importance for EQ Public Schools. We work intentionally to ensure that our employees have the time they need with their families and friends to disconnect from work and rejuvenate. We believe this is critical so all staff can do their best work, every day, for a long time. We are able to provide this balance by offering:
• a late-August start date
• eight days of PD throughout the school year with a 9am start time
• early release for students once per week
• individualized lesson-planning expectations
• and more!
Targeted Support and Development
Providing high-quality professional learning opportunities for our staff is a top priority. We strive to improve our offerings and facilitation every year. As we become more laser-focused on improving academic outcomes for our kids, we constantly refine the support and development we provide our staff. This gives our teachers the space to focus on what really matters: student growth and achievement. New hires report for Summer Summit ’21 on August 23, 2021.
