    Area Wide Professional Learning Day schedule, registration now available

    Char-Em ISD is pleased to announce that details about the Nov. 1, 2019, Area Wide Professional Learning Day are now available online! Please read through the day's offerings and prepare to register for this exceptional day of collaborative learning. The theme for this year's event is "You Hold the Key: Unlocking Greatness." This year’s offerings reflect the third year of focus around the following three areas: Supporting a Positive School Culture, Collective Teacher Efficacy, and Social and Emotional Learning.

    Keynote speaker is Michael Bonner, former teacher at South Greenville Elementary School in North Carolina, and currently a fourth-grade teacher at the Ron Clark Academy. In early 2017, Bonner was honored by Ellen DeGeneres in recognition of his positive and innovative educational approaches for children coping with adverse childhood experiences (also known as ACEs). Ellen presented Bonner and his school with technical equipment to assist in the creation of music videos serving as aids to education. Additionally, Walmart presented the school with $25,000, and the Ellen Show created a Go Fund Me site for South Greenville, which has raised more than $88,000 for the Title I school. 

    You will find keynote, morning and afternoon breakout session details, and information about how to register when you visit the Area Wide Professional Learning Day page.

    Celebrating Career Tech to Careers!

    A new initiative, Career Tech to Careers, is celebrating the decision of high school graduates to enter the workforce after earning their diploma – specifically those students whose high school careers included Career and Technical Education classes.

    “There are many ways that young adults can excel in life after they graduate from high school – it can be by attending a college, university or other post-secondary training, joining the military, and also by taking the skills they learned and heading directly into careers,” said Jim Rummer, Career and Technical Education Director for Charlevoix-Emmet Intermediate School District. “This new Char-Em ISD ‘signing event’ initiative recognizes those students who are putting the knowledge and skills they developed through career tech education classes directly to work.”

    We’re hiring: Char-Em ISD current job openings

    WE ARE HIRING! Substitute bus drivers, riders/aides needed, paid training available

    Precious cargo aboard! Char-Em ISD is looking for substitute bus drivers and riders/aides for our multiple bus routes to and from Char-Em programs. Flexible hours and days mean you choose when you can provide coverage of routes. Char-Em pays for all required driver training (written testing and on-road testing), so experience is not necessary. Experience working with special needs children is not required, but is helpful, as is a compassionate personality. Because of the wide geographical area covered by Char-Em, we pay you from when you leave the house to get to your assigned transportation route each day that you work. Routes may be in Charlevoix, Emmet and northern Antrim counties. Those interested may also start as (paid) aides rather than driver, to see if the job is a good fit.

    Sound like this is for you? We welcome you to learn more by reading the complete job descriptions online. Contact Char-Em ISD’s Transportation Coordinator at 231-582-8070 if you have further questions or you’re interested in applying!
