The Academy for Urban School Leadership (AUSL) is a nonprofit organization that improves student achievement in chronically failing schools, primarily in Chicago, through its disciplined transformation process, built on a foundation of specially trained AUSL teachers. There are a variety of ways to work with AUSL in providing real change for the children of Chicago.
Chicago Teacher Residency
AUSL seeks talented, committed individuals who are passionate about urban education for the Chicago Teacher Residency, a post-graduate program in education. This intensive 12-month, full-time, paid training program combines teacher preparation, certification, and a Master's degree to give Residents the tools they need to dramatically improve student achievement in Chicago’s public schools.
Work at Our Schools
AUSL schools succeed because they have talented, dedicated teachers and staff who hold high expectations for their students and can motivate students to perform at the highest level of their potential. If you want to be part of the team at one of our exceptional AUSL-managed Chicago Public Schools, we invite you to apply for a position in the growing network of AUSL schools.
