Job Description & Requirements

Klappan Independent School is currently seeking applications for Principal.

The Tahltan people of Iskut, BC are strong and proud.  We care deeply about our language and traditions.  We are active stewards of the environment and work together to protect our territory.  We see our greatest resource as our children and are looking for a teacher to join our collaborative team at Klappan Independent School.

We know that the successful candidate will bring certain skills and expertise and we expect that they will also join our team as a learner.  We provide world-class professional development and the opportunity for personalized coaching.  We want the best for our children and know we must support teachers to be the very best.

Iskut, BC is located in Tahltan territory at the Sacred Headwaters of the Stikine, Nass and Skeena Rivers.  Our community is steeped in tradition and we welcome outside school staff to fully participate as visiting community members.  Although we are almost six hours from the closest movie theatre, highway 37 provides access to both Dease Lake, 97 kms north and Terrace, 498 kms to the south.  Comfortable furnished housing and a moving allowance is available. 

If you are the candidate we are looking for, you will enjoy the outdoors and the ample outdoor recreation activities and you will also bring essential skills and abilities.  You possess the skills to create and maintain a safe, positive, and respectful learning climate for all students, staff, parents, and community members.  You have high academic expectations for students and understand how powerful individualized planning can be for students.  You have the desire to develop a progressive team who are prepared to do whatever it takes to support students and integrate language and culture throughout our students’ experience.  You also see yourself as a learner and seek professional development in the form of coaching, professional learning communities, and feedback on your leadership.

Klappan Independent School continues to transformation.  Our focus is student achievement and we are looking forward to the addition of new leadership to our team.  You must hold BC certification.  Klappan Independent School’s salary reflects the neighbouring school district.
