Coral Springs Appoints First Education Relationship Manager

April Wyche {City of Coral Springs}

By Sharon Aron Baron

To elevate the standard of education and foster stronger bonds with parents and school administrators, the City of Coral Springs has announced the appointment of April Wyche, previously the Assistant Principal at Country Hills Elementary School, as the city’s first Education Relationship Manager.

The new role, carrying a pay range of $93,960-$150,120, was conceived in May when Deputy City Manager Catherine Givens unveiled a plan to the Coral Springs Commission.

Highlighting the need for a dedicated position to enhance the quality of the 19 traditional public schools in Coral Springs, the Commission gave their unanimous approval.

Following the development of the job description, the position was advertised in late June. An exhaustive two-month selection process involving multiple rounds of interviews culminated in Wyche’s appointment.

In her new capacity, Wyche is set to become a vital link between the City of Coral Springs, Broward County Public Schools, and the general community. She is tasked with amplifying school-centric priorities, engaging with local parent groups, fortifying alliances between city schools, and boosting the dissemination of school-related updates to residents. One of her innovative propositions includes establishing a collaborative “think tank” to enable schools and their leaders to exchange ideas and leading practices.

“This position spoke to me because, throughout my career, I have excelled at relationship building,” Wyche shared. “I envision my role in this position as an intermediary – bringing people and ideas together for the common good of our educational community.”

Wyche boasts a rich background in the educational realm. Most recently, she was Assistant Principal at Bennett Elementary School in Fort Lauderdale. At Country Hills Elementary School, she was instrumental in helping the institution maintain a consistent “A” rating. She has also served as an ESE Specialist and School Counselor at various institutions, including a decade-long tenure at the City of Pembroke Pines Charter School. Her classroom experience covers teaching grades 2 through 5, and she has been a guiding figure for other school administrators.

A chance to serve as a substitute teacher sparked Wyche’s passion for education. Today, she holds a bachelor’s degree from Florida International University, a master’s from Nova Southeastern University, and a Post-Graduate Degree in Educational Leadership from the same institution.
According to the city, just ten years ago, 19 schools in Coral Springs were ‘A’ rated.

“Our youth are our most valuable asset, and their education is paramount,” said Wynche. “I am confident that, working together, we can make Coral Springs an even brighter shining star that lends to the city’s vision to be the premier community in which to live, work, and raise a family.”
