Coventry Public Schools’ programs and practices reflect a serious focus on the continuous improvement of academic achievement as well as the social and emotional growth of each of our students.
The Board of Education has a strong commitment to ensuring that every student leaves our district college- and career-ready with the 21st-century skills necessary to meet success. This commitment is evident by the three district goals adopted by the Board of Education:
Coventry Public Schools offers many opportunities for prospective teachers! Our Coventry Public Schools Professional Development Plan is aligned to our District Goals, District Strategic Plan, and School Improvement Plans and offers customized professional training for teachers aligned to their classroom goals. In addition, CPS supports teacher attendance and participation in conferences and workshops aligned to teachers’ needs and interests. In Coventry teachers engage in collaborative inquiry in content areas and by grade level on topics related to curriculum, instruction, and assessment, and we believe in collective teacher efficacy, the ability of teachers working together to improve the achievement of all students. Numerous leadership opportunities exist for teachers in Coventry district wide including participation on a variety of committees-District Technology Committee, Curriculum Cabinet, Literacy Council, Professional Development and TEVAL Committee, New Teacher Orientation Committee, and the Portrait of the Graduate Committee.
Coventry is a growing school district interested in attracting highly qualified candidates to provide our students with outstanding educational opportunities. We provide our faculty and staff with competitive wages, excellent benefits, opportunities for professional development, and environments for our employees to showcase their skills and abilities while working in a team structure.
We are nondiscriminatory in our employment and follow procedures to ensure equal opportunity for all applicants without regard to race, religion, ethnicity, ancestry, disability, sex or age. We are proud of our current professional and support staff, and seek to maintain current levels of talented and enthusiastic employees.
Coventry Public Schools involves interested students in earning credits as members of the Student Help Desk who offer technology support to teachers in setting up and using technology. Students also serve as mentors to other students across the district to guide them in their academic, social and emotional development.
Our high school band members visit other Coventry Schools annually to teach fifth- through ninth-grade students about instruments and their own experiences.
Many informal opportunities exist for our students to engage with and teach lessons to our public preschool students at the Hale Early Education Center.
