 Why work at the Aspen School District?

1) You want to make a difference

The Aspen School District has a strong academic curriculum, striving to provide students with critical thinking skills and a global perspective for informed, responsible citizenship. A district-wide outdoor/experiential education curriculum recognizes and encourages development of mind, body, and spirit. With goals of promoting respect for the environment and developing individual self-confidence to “go the extra mile”, this unique program offers students activities from service oriented to rugged outdoor adventure. Aspen School District seeks employees who enjoy challenges, possess a love of life-long learning, and set expectations of high achievement for themselves and students.

2) Educators deserve support and respect          

Within this community of educators, staff members have time to collaborate with their co-workers, sharing and improving what happens in classrooms. Veteran mentors provide new employees with guidance as well as an understanding of the mission and culture of the district. The board of education is committed to maintaining reasonable class sizes, and professional development opportunities are available to all staff.
The Aspen School District receives strong support from parents and community members who volunteer regularly in classrooms and serve on school and district committees. Voters have approved mill levy increases to provide one of the best salary schedules in Colorado; new teachers have a starting salary of $40,500 and the maximum pay on the current schedule is $87,200. The Aspen Education Foundation, a local non-profit has provided numerous grants to support academic programs and professional development needs. District housing has been purchased and continues to be constructed to offer reasonable rental fees in this resort community, and free bus service is provided for those employees who have a long daily commute.  

3) Location is important too

Located on one campus in the beautiful Maroon Creek Valley, our schools serve approximately 1600 students from preschool to grade 12. The facilities include the pre-school, called “The Cottage”, a small structure tucked into the hillside adjacent to the high school; the high school, renovated and increased in size six years ago; the elementary school, which recently added a wing with several new classrooms; and a newly constructed middle school that received the first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design gold certification in Colorado.

In cooperation with the City of Aspen, the parks encircling the schools are used in the summer for community events and during the school year for games and practices. The Aspen Ski Club, situated just beyond the high school parking lot, has a ski lift to the Aspen Highlands ski area for after-school alpine practices, and there are Nordic tracks on the surrounding fields for both competitive events and recreational skiing. A foot bridge connects the schools with the City of Aspen recreational center offering a climbing tower, swimming pool, ice arena, and providing fitness and wellness classes.
