Currently, there are NO full-time teaching positions for HVLN/E-School. HVLN/E-School teachers work as part-time teachers. If you are interested in applying, please ensure you meet the instructor qualifications and can commit to the course facilitation expectations.
- We are currently looking for highly qualified (HQT) and Hawaii licensed teachers in the areas of 9-12th grade and Advanced Placement Social Studies and World Languages.
All HVLN/E-School teachers must hold a current, valid secondary teaching license, meet the Highly Qualified Teacher requirements, reside in Hawaii and have successfully completed the Connect! professional development course. HVLN/E-School instructors are also recommended to have classroom teaching experience within their content area and be technologically literate.
Each HVLN partner has their own requirements. Please contact UH OLA and MBTA directly for their requirements.
Currently, all teaching positions are part-time. We do not have any full-time teaching positions. Teaching assignments are above and beyond your regular teaching line. In the future, full-time positions may become available.
During the regular school year, E-School teachers are compensated on a per course fee. Semester courses range from $1500-$3000 and year courses range from $3000-$6000 per course. Exact payment is based on the number of students enrolled.
The summer school compensation follows the Hawaii Department of Education summer school payment schedule. One semester course is taught in six weeks and compensation is $1680. A teacher can teach a maximum of two six week semester courses concurrently for the summer.
For MBTA and UH OLA, please contact them directly for their teacher compensation schedule.
HVLN/E-School teachers can instruct a maximum of two courses per semester.
On average, teachers should anticipate spending between 5-7 hours a week per course.
Teachers are expected to have daily communication with their courses based on a five day work week, respond to students within 24 hours, attend annual face-to-face teacher meetings (usually held in the summer), meet administrative deadlines (i.e. progress reports, report cards, evaluations, etc) and apply best practices for effective online instruction. Teachers are also expected to have access to high-speed Internet connection.
HVLN/E-School teachers are provided with a laptop computer, headset, and related software to facilitate their courses. Technical and curriculum support is provided by the HVLN staff. Teachers are expected to actively participate in the HVLN/E-School professional learning community to provide support to each other. Professional development is also provided at the annual HVLN/E-School meetings.
Teachers are expected to be able to effectively use online tools such as email, forums, web editors, emerging Web 2.0 tools and have the technical skills developed through the Connect! professional development course. With the rapid changes in technology, teachers need to be open to constantly learning how to effectively use emerging online tools for learning.
The list of courses is constantly changing depending on the demand and availability of qualified teachers. Courses within the four core subject areas are offered as well as elective courses available in the ACCN. The most current course listing is available on the E-School website (www.eschool.k12.hi.us).
If a teacher has the content expertise for a specific ACCN course that is not currently listed, please submit a proposal to the HVLN/E-School Educational Specialist. Proposals will be reviewed and evaluated to determine if there is a high enough need and support is available to develop the course.
At this time, middle and high school ACCN credit courses are being offered by HVLN/E-School. As HVLN/E-School expands, future plans include offering supplementary elementary courses.
