Dean of Community Outreach and Culture

ACE: Grow, Everyone, Every Day.This mission of ACE Charter Schools is to serve struggling students by working with them to “gain the skills and will” to succeed at ACE schools, college, and beyond. ACE strategically recruits students and families to its three middle schools and one high school that feel disengaged and are falling behind academically. As a result, 91% of our students are considered low-income, 20% of students qualify for special education services, and 56% are classified as English Learners.Our mission demands an equity mindset - we recruit, develop and promote diverse staff. As a result, 74% of our teachers and 70% of our leaders identify as people of color. After 12 years, our model is seeing results: 89% of the ACE High School seniors from 2016 to 2021 have met the eligibility requirements for CSU/UC compared with 35% across the state. Our relationship-driven, community-focused approach is embodied in our motto: “Grow, Everyone, Every Day.” As Irene Moran Iboa, parent and ACE board member, commented, “The journey at ACE has been one of  rediscovering the significance of generosity and humility in being a leader and the power of audacity and integrity in making dreams come true. ACE not only just changed my kids’ life, but it changed mine. Now I know that my kids can have a better future and attend a college or university [because of ACE].”Position SummaryAs one of the school leaders at the school, this is a dynamic role that requires deep involvement with many schools and community stakeholders. The Dean of Culture and Community Outreach will ensure ACE students have a positive experience while on ACE campuses, but also will seek to provide students with internal and external opportunities, experiences they may not normally have. Additionally, the Dean of Culture and Community Outreach will oversee a Student Recruitment and Enrollment plan, managing a recruitment team to ensure recruitment targets are met.
