Phoenix Education Jobs with BASIS Expanding

One of the nation's most successful schools is creating Phoenix education jobs (Click here).

BASIS Schools charter schools recently announced that new campuses in Chandler, Peoria, and Flagstaff will open in time for the 2011-2012 school year. The school system plans to continue expanding in order to serve more than 9,000 students within five years.

Thew new campuses were made possible by a $300,000 donation over three years from The Rodel Charitable Foundation of Arizona; Craig Barrett, president and chairman of BASIS Schools; and education reform advocate Barbara Barrett.

"I congratulate BASIS Schools for their commitment to excellence in education and welcome the news of their expansion," Gov. Jan Brewer said. "BASIS Schools prove that high expectations are the foundation for success. Thanks to the dedication of community leaders, Craig and Barbara Barrett and The Rodel Foundation, more Arizona students will have a chance to attend one of the nation’s most recognized schools."

BASIS schools operate under Arizona's Charter School Law, which allows charter schools throughout the state to develop their own curriculum, focus less on reports, and hire "highly qualified" teachers instead of "certified" teachers.

Newsweek and U.S. News & World Report has named BASIS Tucson among its top 10 schools, while BusinessWeek has named BASIS Scottsdale as the top high school in Arizona for overall academic performance.

"I consider BASIS Schools a model for achievable and ambitious education reforms as presented in the State of Arizona's Race to the Top application," Brewer added. "The state's process of developing the RTTT application was designed to serve as a roadmap for continued education reform and BASIS Schools are leading the way when it comes to implementing and utilizing principles for education reform in Arizona. My hope is that someday, every school in Arizona will have the same level of achievement as BASIS Schools."
