Urban School Program Educators teach set curricula to 3rd-6th grade students in King and Snohomish Counties. Urban School Program Educators may engage in partner teaching, collaborating, and problem solving to ensure that school groups receive a high-quality, grade-appropriate program that attends to their learning needs.
