  • Primary School Co-Curricular Language Coordinator

    Summary:

    The co-curricular language coordinator (CLC) provides leadership and organization of students and tutors who participate in language classes in the co-curricular program. The CLC liaises with the primary school administration to address student, tutor, parent and school needs with specific regard to the co-curricular Language Program.
     
    Reports to: Head of Primary School.
     
    Essential Duties and Responsibilities:

    The CLC organizes two programs: Heritage Language and Language Support.
    • Heritage Language: Through communication with the PS parent body, CLC identifies which languages are spoken in the home and assesses the interest in those communities for heritage language support. In all cases the language should be connected to the student’s identity even if it is not spoken in the home (ex: Swahili and Hindi). If there are three or more students interested, CLC recruits a native speaking tutor of that language (in consultation with the Head of Primary) to teach the class. If there are not enough students to create a class, we will also facilitate a one to one tutoring session if staffing and parent interest makes this viable. In that case, CLS will oversee the “school-supported” program for students who speak languages we are not providing a tutor for. This program is open to students outside of AIS as well, so publicizing the program (in consultation with the communications department) is part of the CLC’s responsibility.
    • Language Support: At every grade level 5K-Gr. 5, for every school based language and ESOL, we offer learning support to students who need extra instruction or to students whose parents desire it. CLC recruits a native speaking tutor of that language (in consultation with the Head of Primary) to teach the class. Tutors liaise with the class teachers to understand the learning needs of each student and to establish short term individual learning goals to be reviewed regularly.
    For both programs, the CLC will:
    • assess interest in the program and designing a program to meet the needs.
    • schedule time and place for classes to meet in liaison with the Head of Auxiliary programs and relevant PS leadership.
    • work collaboratively with our after-school care program, Kaleidoscope, and other enrichment programs in order to allocate spaces and run a cohesive afterschool program.
    • organize the registration of setting up groups in SchoolCareWorks and communicating with families in order to invite them to sign up for classes.
    • recruit tutors (interview, background check, contract, etc.)
    • on-boarding new tutors (badge, orientation to IT, faculty handbook, Praesidium training, etc.)
    • purchase resources (especially for the heritage language program).
    • provide professional development for enrichment and heritage language tutors in order to create alignment and understanding amongst the language tutors.
    • supervise Heritage Language tutors to keep lessons inquiry-based and aligned across the program.
    • supervise Language Support tutors to keep the lessons focused on the assessed individual needs of students.
    • organize and manage substitute language tutors as needed for absences.
    • liaise with business office for any questions about payment/refund etc.
    • communicate with parents, teachers, the after-school coordinator and the Head of Primary.
    • nurture relationships with the community providers of heritage language programs.
    • provide feedback to language support tutors to help them meet the learning goals set for their students.
    • take attendance at the beginning of each session and dismiss students at the end.
    • assist tutors with behavior management concerns when classes are in session.
    Meetings:
    • Plan and act as chair for co-curricular language meetings, and establish and maintain meeting norms.
    • Provide schedules, agendas and minutes to all enrichment and heritage language tutors and administration.
    • Plan regular meetings, for heritage language tutors in order to promote inquiry-based learning and foster professional development opportunities.
    Communications: 
    • Ensure privacy of all confidential communications.
    • Liaise and communicate with other programs to ensure alignment of practice if/when appropriate.
    • Facilitate communication between parents and tutors as needed.

     Other Administrative Responsibilities:

    • Work with Primary School Administration to develop and administer annual enrichment and heritage language budget.
    • Work with other Coordinators (eg PYP, IT etc) to place and receive orders for curriculum materials in the target language.
    • Establish weekly payroll of all tutors in liaison with HR.

    Contribute to the Appraisal process by:
