New Educators

APS Basecamp logo - Building and supporting Educators (BASE)APS welcomes all T-scale new hires to our 2021 BASE Camp: Building and Supporting Educators. This orientation is strongly encouraged and is for all educators who are new to Arlington Public Schools, regardless of previous teaching experience. Currently, APS BASE Camp events will take place during the week of August 16th – August 18th, with virtual pre-work for many educators on August 13th. Although, BASE Camp will primarily be  a VIRTUAL event, some smaller groups have opted to meet in person. In person events will be clearly noted on your agendas for the week. Any updates to BASE Camp will be noted on this page as well as emailed out closer to the event.

Please note: This orientation is separate from the On-boarding process done by Human Resources. New T-scale employees that attend will be paid $17.40/hour. This orientation will include required sessions that might vary dependent on your position. A complete schedule of sessions will be emailed out to all RSVPs once they are finalized. In order for us to know how many new hires will be in attendance, please complete the RSVP below.
