Join the movement to radically change public education in the District of Columbia. Nationally, students with disabilities are twice as likely as their non-disabled peers to live a lifetime in poverty. This proposition is simply unacceptable. Our team can do something about it.
First Home Care has partnered with DC Public Schools to further DCPS's vision that students with disabilities will become successful adults who live independently, have careers and are productively engaged in the community. We are seeking an energetic and committed candidate to join our team as a Student Progress Monitor for DCPS.

Run well-organized Individualized IEP meetings and remain poised under pressure from from diverse parties with diverse interests.
Write IEPs that contain well-formulated, specific and realistic plans.
Collaborate with a variety of DC agencies and monitor the provision of services to students.
