Facilitator: Jennifer Coffey
Families from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds face unique circumstances which may make it difficult for them to effectively engage in their child’s education. This session will focus on the resources and tools that PACER staff developed, with our school district partners, under our SPDG grant, to help promote meaningful parent engagement with these families. We will highlight the resources available on our webpage for school professionals and parents. We will also talk about the lessons learned, efforts to disseminate this information, and our new SPDG grant, which focuses on family engagement for African American and American Indian transition age youth.
