School in the Park employs many part-time staff members as Education Facilitators to assist students and educators in their work. Facilitators meet each class at their bus in the morning and guide them to the museum they are attending for that week. They stay and assist in a variety of ways coming to know the students and staff. Our Facilitators come from a variety of backgrounds, predominantly education, and go on to become valued community leaders. In addition to our facilitators we also employ College-workers who gain class credits as they work.
The primary role of School in the Park Support Staff is to act as liaison between museum and school personnel, to assist educators in providing a rich and rewarding educational experience for our students, and to ensure the safety of our students while at the Park.
