Job Posting: Assistant Director/Lead Coach Trauma-Informed Schools Initiative, Deadline to apply 4/13/17

The Assistant Director position is a two-year grant funded position, with the potential for extension, with Los Angeles Education Partnership.

This project is designed to support and implement a trauma-informed school environment in selected K-12 schools both within and outside of California through a partnership with Kaiser Permanente. A central component of this project’s approach to a trauma-informed school environment is to embed practices at each school that prioritize the wellness of school employees in order to improve their overall health and wellness. This frame helps schools to support and retain quality teachers and staff by improving their resiliency and health, while also improving schools’ overall climate. The coaches will provide critical thought-partnership, professional development, facilitation and consultation to school staff to support the school’s development of mindsets, systems, practices, strategic planning, interventions and partnerships needed to effectively develop trauma-informed schools and systems that support student and staff well-being and resilience.

This position is responsible for assisting the project director in ensuring the successful implementation of this 2-year pilot initiative by leading the team of 4 coaches and providing coaching support to schools. Specifically, this individual will be responsible for the planning, design and facilitation of staff development in order to implement the LAEP curriculum and develop the skills and capacities of our team of coaches.  And, as part of the launch of this pilot project this position will also provide coaching support for three participating schools including classroom and school team consultation, leadership coaching, professional development, and coaching to implement a trauma informed approach and ensure successful program implementation.
