The mission of Communities in Schools of Seattle (CIS-Seattle) is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. CIS Seattle works in under-resourced schools to ensure that all students have the support they need to succeed in school and life. CIS is the nation’s leading dropout prevention program founded on the premise that students can and will achieve academically when resources to address their academic and social needs are tailored, coordinated and accessible. The position requires an understanding of equity, diversity and social justice in the communities in which we work.
The Site Coordinator (SC) organizes resources necessary to address the social and emotional needs of students who are at risk of dropping out of school. Through the coordination of individual and group interventions, as well as prevention activities, the SC is a key player within the school to help students toward graduation. The SC provides confidential, developmentally appropriate, culturally sensitive interventions, services and support to students needing additional resources in order to make a positive connection to school. The SC forms partnerships with the community and other agencies to help provide these resources. Responsibilities may change based on the needs of the program and school.
