Holyoke Public Schools (HPS) serves 5,300 students in 11 schools and employs nearly 1000 people. This is an exciting time of change and transformation at HPS. Although there are many strengths within the District and many students graduate college and career ready, last year, HPS was placed in receivership by the State of Massachusetts, due to chronically struggling performance well below the state average. The State appointed Dr. Stephen Zrike, a seasoned Massachusetts educator, as Receiver, to lead this exciting turnaround effort, which includes significant autonomy and flexibility from the traditional school system.

The Therapeutic Intervention Program (TIP) is a program developed to support the academic and social/emotional needs of students diagnosed with emotional and/or behavioral disabilities. This program is a substantially separate special education program that runs K-12 and serves students in small group settings. In addition to supporting academics, the ideal candidate will also support the social/emotional needs of the student to support the development of self-regulation skills while building independence with the goal of transitioning these students back into an inclusive setting.
Holyoke Public Schools is committed to maintaining a work and learning environment free from discrimination on the basis of a person's race, color, religion, sexual orientation, national Origin, ancestry, age, sex, genetic information, military or veteran status, gender identity or disability, as defined and required by state and federal laws. Additionally, we prohibit retaliation against individuals who oppose such discrimination and harassment or who participate in an equal opportunity investigation.
