Is there really only ONE in your area? Is a little bit of a commute out of the question? (I have to drive an hour for work, but audio books help, a lot).
I live in a very small town. The nearest private school that isn't religious is 90 minutes away. That's more than I'm willing to drive.
I've got more upcoming interviews with other schools, maybe just getting away from my current school will help.
If you are unwilling to move then you are allowing yourself to be stuck. I am not saying it's an easy thing to do, but there are options available for good teachers IF they are willing to relocate. Imagine a student saying, "I am unwilling to budge on this....." and they are failing. You have admitted that your not happy and apparently unwilling to budge. So, you have very few choices and the worst one imho is a life you look back upon and are disappointed and always say, "What if...".
Please reconsider moving. Get the hell out of that small town. There are GREAT options available for gifted teachers. I truly do wish you well.

You are a teacher, yet here on ATS. What do you hope to gain by posting what you have on a conspiracy/alt news website? Back round checks are normal for a job. Why are teachers not subjected to teaching practice? A practice where it is mandatory to exclude your own opinion on a subjects matter.
You are the Universe of your kids(students),the link between the society,family and the rest of the surrounding reality.
