Job Posting: Principal at BC School for the Deaf

Principal – BC School for the Deaf
Burnaby School District (No. 41)
Location: Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada

As a province-wide program within the Burnaby School District, the BC School for the Deaf (BCSD) is a Kindergarten to Grade 12 school in partnership with South Slope Elementary and Burnaby South Secondary public schools. Working as a team, members of the BC School for the Deaf strive to develop the full learning potential and positive self-identity of each student by providing a broad range of educational opportunities for deaf and hard of hearing students from K–12. This inclusive educational environment offers deaf and hard of hearing students the experience to learn with their hearing peers or in a signing environment while enjoying the traditional values of language, culture and Deaf heritage.

Leading a collaborative team and leveraging the full spectrum of research-based learning strategies – personalized learning, technology in education and language development, the BC School for the Deaf is seeking a new Principal who has demonstrated exemplary instructional leadership and models evidence-based practices in teaching. Leading teams at both BCSD Burnaby South Secondary and BCSD South Slope Elementary, this individual will work alongside Principals of mainstream schools in order to build and nurture relationships of trust with all stakeholders. In particular, a deep understanding of the unique needs of the deaf and hard of hearing community, as well as a collaborative communication style will be crucial in this role.

Reporting to the Assistant Superintendent of Schools, the Principal will be accountable for providing overall leadership and direction to the BC School for the Deaf. As the educational and administrative leader of the school, the new incumbent will be responsible for promoting, articulating, and instilling in the faculty, students, and parents the vision at the school. Adhering to the Burnaby School District’s policies, goals, and objectives, the ideal candidate will engage in future planning, goal-setting, and policy development, as well as continue the BCSD’s legacy of academic excellence, full- spectrum research-based learning strategies, and active community involvement.

The BC School for the Deaf is looking for a candidate that desires to have a strong personal connection with the school and brings demonstrated academic, administrative and financial leadership experience from within the public or independent school system in a position such as Head of School, Deputy Head, Principal, Vice Principal, or equivalent. This individual holds a Master’s of Education in Deaf Education, is ASL fluent, and has training in educational leadership, supervision of instruction or program and curriculum development. He/she brings a broad spectrum of deaf education experience, is research-focused, and is a strong curriculum leader with a background in language development and special education, including working with students who display challenging behaviours.

He/she will possess a toolkit for supporting a growing school and bring a high level of emotional intelligence. Fit with the school ethos and style will be of paramount importance. This is an opportunity for a dynamic and engaged educational leader who wants to provide students at the BC School for the Deaf the best educational experience possible.
