June 24, 2019


For this CHARTER EDtalk, our Head of Business Consulting, Tricia Blum, and CMO, Janet Johnson were honored to sit down with Michael LaRoche, Founder and Executive Director (ED), SALTech Charter High School. We wanted to learn what unique challenges he faces as the ED for a dropout-recovery high school for “at risk” or as he prefers to say “at promise” students. On the flip side, what are the greatest rewards in serving this economically disadvantaged – and underserved – student population. Watch his inspiring story and hear his perspective on supporting these amazing students.
