The School Principal Search Committee


We are assembling a search committee to represent each of the constituencies of Equipo Academy. The Search Committee needs to be formed by October 10, giving us one week for each constituency to elect a member to the Search Committee. This will include seven members from each constituency of the school:

  • one student
  • one parent
  • one alumni
  • one teacher
  • one non-teacher staff member
  • one leadership team member
  • one board member

Committee members will be chosen by their constituencies in an election on October 10. Once selected, members will be listed here with a contact link to communicate feedback and ideas during the process.

A Campus Built for Great Teachers

There is no magic curriculum and there are no silver bullets. Great schools are defined by great teachers. So we have worked hard to hire a team and family of incredible educators and we have built an incredible place for them to work. Our commitment to teachers is reflected in every decision we make.

  1. A Best Place to Teach
    As a team, we are committed to creating a campus that is a best place to teach. This means providing teachers with the autonomy to design and deliver their best instruction, along with the coaching they need to keep getting better. It means two preps a day and a collaborative environment to make the challenging job of teaching a more sustainable career. And it means a multitude of leadership opportunities for teachers to become campus leaders and career master teachers.

  2. Salaries that Value Great Teaching
    Equipo Academy board members have affirmed their commitment to great teachers by offering the highest starting salaries of any Clark County public school and a compensation plan that allows teachers to quickly advance without complicated step- or column- salary structures. Simply put, great teachers are rewarded with the compensation packages they deserve.

  3. Comprehensive Benefits
    Equipo Academy provides comprehensive medical, vision, and dental benefits as well as life insurance and a comprehensive employee assistance program. As public employees, our teachers are eligible for the same PERS retirement benefits at the same rates that other teachers in Southern Nevada receive. And we have worked closely with our teachers to launch innovative new leave policies as we move into our second and third years of operation, including the first-ever team PTO policy and most generous parental leave policies of any public school in Nevada. Our teachers make our family at Equipo and so our policies respect their families, too.


At Equipo Academy, we are always searching for great people to join our team as we grow to serve even more students in East Las Vegas.

If you applied in a previous year, please re-apply so we know that you continue to have interest in one of the above positions.

We hire early for the following school year and will schedule interviews as soon as you apply. Our initial application can be completed in under five minutes. After submitting an application, a member of our team will follow-up within 48 hours. Please note that our response times may be delayed as we are currently operating remotely.

Our full application process includes a phone interview, meeting students, families and staff, a portfolio, and an interview day with other applicants. We are excited to learn more about your work and share more of our story with you in the process!
