Child Protection Policy

At Kaohsiung American School (KAS) we believe that every child has the right to a safe and secure learning environment. To ensure the safety of our children and our community, KAS conducts rigorous background checks on all employees before making a job offer. Candidates will be asked to submit background/criminal checks as well as at least three references, two of whom must be your current or former supervisors, that are able to be contacted and spoken to. In addition, KAS has clear policies and guidelines for child protection as documented in its Child Protection and Community Wellness Handbook.

Qualifications

General qualifications include two years of teaching experience, a teaching certificate, technological confidence, a willingness to participate in the school’s extra-curricular program, and a commitment to excellence in a student-centered school.

Preferred qualifications include a flexible and “can do” approach to teaching, a sense of humor, and a desire to contribute to school improvement as a team player.

Teacher Package

There are lots of great reasons to work at KAS. You’ll be working on a modern campus, with large well-lit, air-conditioned classrooms. The campus is built for technology, from the bus stop to the desktop. You’ll be issued a MacBook computer, with a rapid upgrade cycle based on returning contracts. Professionally, you’ll grow as an educator with regular access to professional development on- and off-campus.

Financially, KAS offers a competitive salary and an increasing longevity bonus, so there’s a good opportunity for savings. Speaking of savings, the teacher package includes an optional retirement program with school matching, on-campus access to banking and financial planners, and a housing and utility allowance that will allow you to live in one of Kaohsiung’s many desirable neighborhoods near the school, and convenient to dining, entertainment, and shopping.

We hope that you’ll live comfortably in your new home. To get you started off right, KAS provides flight, shipping, and settling-in allowances. And while we hope you never need it, you’ll be covered from the start by Taiwan’s National Health Insurance program, one of the top-rated healthcare systems in the world. Additionally, group and supplemental coverage are offered by the school as needed.

If you’re joining KAS as a family with school-age children, tuition waivers are available for dependents.
