The Collaborative for Educational Services (CES) seeks Educational Instructional Support Specialists to assist with onsite coordination of hybrid and/or remote teaching and learning. The Specialist will provide structure, onsite support and the connection to teachers as needed.  The Specialist's purpose is to make sure that students have what they need in order to actively, and successfully engage with their learning when done via remote instruction, or through a combination of in person and on-line (hybrid) programming. These temporary positions serve CES' Special Education in Institution Settings (SEIS) program under the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.  Openings are in Tewksbury, Taunton, Worcester, and Springfield MA (part-time/flexible schedule).

We value: Quality and excellence, innovation, creativity and vision, inclusiveness, equity and diversity and collaboration with others. Creating a community of care is foundational to the work we do, together!

Social Justice and Equity work is central to our mission, especially in these times. We understand that all forms of oppression are damaging. We engage in this work pro-actively and purposefully, with the intent of positive outcomes, and because we need to.
