Every year we seek SC candidates who can speak Spanish. Because a significant portion of our Scholars come from Spanish speaking families, it is critical to have Spanish Coordinators to assist in both oral and written Spanish communication.

SCs receive program specific training throughout the school year. Schuler ensures that SCs feel prepared, confident and supported while working with students and facilitating programs. SCs can also take advantage of various professional development opportunities.
