About the school: Augusta Evans is a stand-alone public day school that serves students with moderate to severe disabilities. Our student population includes students with a diversity of disabilities who are ages 5-21.

We are fortunate enough to have over 25 certified special-education teachers in one school setting. Working at a school setting such as Evans affords teachers with the opportunity to collaborate freely with other special-education teachers who have similar day-to-day experiences.

Here are just some of the things that makes Augusta Evans a special place to teach.

  • Evans participates in the Alabama Teacher Mentor Program, which provides training on a one-on-one basis for new teachers on Individualized Educational Plan creation.

  • We have weekly employee recognition incentives.

  • Time is allotted during the day for IEP development.

  • Dance, Art, and Music classes are offered for students.

  • Professional development opportunities are provided in the areas of behavior management, curriculum, and instruction and in the care and management of students with severe medical needs.

  • Our students develop career skills through our greenhouse program, Project SEARCH, and a unique program where they sort and sell Mardi Gras beads.
