The world crisis generated by COVID-19 has had various repercussions at the global level. This situation invites us to reflect on our institutionality and the importance of the school within the processes of instability. In this aspect, school management at the middle or district level (sostenedores/supporters in Chile) stands out as a key agent in territorial articulation and attention to care needs with their school communities. This article intends to know the management modalities in school coexistence existing in Chilean supporters. Through a two-stage cluster analysis and a decision tree, groups of supporters were identified according to their management of school coexistence. The results show the presence of three levels of management, whose approaches vary from less to more complexity. These groups are differentiated according to characteristics such as dependency (public or subsidized), number of schools in charge, knowledge of the territory, and recognition of achievement in coexistence. Likewise, the socialization of roles and functions of these managers is identified as central. The need to evaluate the political-institutional conditions that affect the approach and management of school coexistence at an intermediate level, which is crucial in crisis situations, is discussed.
