The Lead Family Empowerment Coach is a hybrid leadership role that combines direct student support with leading adults. The Lead Coach serves as a member of the Student Services team and cabinet leadership team, supporting high school students and families in a “best fit” environment for teenagers with significant barriers to education. Coaches help students achieve their academic and post-secondary goals by providing ongoing advising, support, and resource connections to the student, family, and other supportive adults around the student. Each coach is responsible for a caseload, typically ranging from 65–90 students. Coaches build relationships with students and families and provide resources to connect to opportunities and remove barriers to the student’s educational progress. The Lead Coach has a reduced student caseload and spends the remainder of their time supporting the development and success of the other Family Empowerment Coaches and providing leadership on projects for the coaching team. With our core values of Professional, Unstoppable, Motivated, Accountable, and Supportive, the school priorities include:
