Engaging Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Families

SIGnetwork Webinar on working with families from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds

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 MN 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.
