Founded by seven community members in 2014, Jefferson RISE Charter School will have 740 students in grades 6-12 for the 2021-2022 school year. Located in Harvey, Louisiana, we serve a diverse group of students from the Westbank of Jefferson Parish, with a student body that is 52% Black/African American, 30% White, 16% Hispanic, and 2% Asian and where 92% of students qualify as economically disadvantaged.
We believe in educating the whole child, supporting both an academic foundation as well as building students’ social-emotional skills and readiness for long-term college and career success. Our model includes:
- High-Quality Academic Program: With a longer school day and school, one-on-one tutoring, intervention, one-to-one devices, and a rigorous curriculum, our academics prepare our students for college.
- Social-Emotional Learning: Everything we do supports students to develop and live our values of Character, Respect, Integrity, Self-Discipline, and Excellence.
- Student Life and Career Readiness: Beyond our core academic program, we provide enrichment opportunities and electives, skill blocks, and community circles to support students in developing their passions and life-long happiness.
Since our founding, we have achieved remarkable results with our students. In the 2018-2019 school year (the latest year with available data), our 8th graders outperformed both district and state achievement levels in all subject areas, and our high school earned an “A” growth grade from the Louisiana Department of Education. We have also found that students who spend more time at our school are significantly more likely to score proficient or advanced on end-of-year exams.
The Dual Enrollment and Library Monitor is responsible for monitoring and supporting dual enrollment students and the library for the duration of the school day.
The Dual Enrollment and Library Monitor will also maintain appropriate related documentation records and reports.
Other duties may be assigned as needed.
As a charter school, Jefferson RISE sets its own academic calendar and daily/weekly schedule based on the needs of its students. Staff generally work from mid-July (beginning with professional development before students arrive) through late May.
Teachers expected to stay after school one day a week for tutoring or other afterschool activities. Weekly professional learning opportunities are provided on Fridays.
