School District 49
 Colorado Springs, El Paso County, Colorado, United States

Job Description

The POWER Zone in School District 49 is searching for a motivated and dynamic individual to lead Vista Ridge High School, one of 7 schools within Colorado’s largest unified Innovation Zone.  Vista Ridge High School has excellent teachers and a history of both strong academic growth as well as competitive sports, visual and performing arts, and other extracurricular programming.

Vista Ridge is one of only 11 high schools in the nation to receive the Marzano High Reliability Schools Level 1 and 2 designations. Vista Ridge is deeply committed to ensuring all students have opportunities to be engaged in their educational journey. This means that Vista Ridge’s career and academic planning is individualized down to the individual student level. Pathway learning, where students first explore various learning opportunities and then begin to focus on particular areas of interest by graduation, is at the heart of this work. Concurrent enrollment, work based learning, and career and technical education opportunities all support this commitment.

Vista Ridge is actively working on creating increased online and blended programming options in order to provide increased opportunity for more flexible on campus and off campus learning options as well as increased course offerings and pathway opportunities. This is evolving work that will continue to develop over the next few years.
