27J: A Dynamic Employer in a Dynamic Region
27J Schools serves three Colorado communities just outside of Denver: Brighton, Commerce City and Thornton. The school district sits in the heart of a fast-growing region adjacent to Denver International Airport and close to Boulder, Denver and the many amazing outdoor activities Colorado offers.
We are the only Denver metro area school district to operate on a 4 day school week. 27J teachers work Tuesday through Friday and one 4-hour professional development Monday. The new schedule added individual and collaborative planning time to the week and now offers educators an additional day to engage all that Colorado offers. Dynamic school district initiatives included classroom technology, late start for high school students, counselors added to every elementary school and new curriculum across levels. And, 27J Schools is in the final phase of $250 million school and facilities upgrades that includes four new schools and upgrades to each of the existing schools.
With student enrollment at among the fastest growth rates in Colorado, 22 schools, a new middle school, and additional positions added to support our high schools, 27J hired over 200 teachers last year. 27J Schools looks to continue to pave a dynamic path and hire dedicated elementary, special education, middle school, and high school teachers to serve our vision for the future.
In support of our mission and our schools, we operate administrative departments that include a range of career opportunities in technology, child care, communications, transportation, nutrition services, finance and accounting, human resources, construction, emergency response management, planning, and facilities.
27J Schools employs over 1,700 staff to serve this mission. This website focuses on the recruitment and hiring of teachers, administrators, and staff to meet the needs of our students. To learn more about our school district in general, please browse our main site.
