Judith Gap is a small, rural community in central Montana. The town has a post office, gas station/convenience store, repair shop, bar, café, assisted living facility, and two churches. The nearest location for groceries is about twenty miles away. Billings, Bozeman, and Great Falls are all within a two to two-and-a-half hour drive. With regards to living expenses, rent runs about $250-$400 a month for houses or apartments in town based on availability. Opportunities for fishing, hunting, and other outdoor activities are available within the local area. This is a tight knit community that is very supportive of the school and is proud of the quality education that is provided.
The average class size in the high school is one to two students, so we expect teachers to be flexible and schedule according to the needs of the students. Since our numbers are small, we like to have the students in classes together to be able to socialize. We have high expectations from both students and teachers, not only in regards to education, but good manners and model citizenship. Technology is expected to be fully integrated into the curriculum. Teachers have Smart Boards in their classrooms and the school provides high school students with laptops, junior high students with Chromebooks, and elementary students with iPads.
Current first-year salary is $25,000. Benefits include free lunch, paid single health insurance, four days of personal leave, and twelve days of sick leave. Coaching and bus driving may be available.
Applicants will be notified of interview dates and preference will be given to those applicants who interview in person, as well as those with additional teaching endorsements.
