Overview: Empowering the immigrant parent as a partner in their children's education is critical if we desire immigrant students to be successful and stride to a higher level of academic achievement.

This workshop is designed to help professionals and paraprofessional in the task of facilitating the engagement of immigrant families who may not be accustom to taking an active role alongside teachers and administrators. It is also essential to understand that parents/guardians absence from school activities does not mean a lack of interest but rather a different perspective in their role as parents.

In this presentation you will learn these and many more areas of interest that will assist you in moving forward with parent engagement. An initial step prior to engaging the parents is to learn and understand your immigrant population. Understanding what they went through and what their current stressors are will help you in being mindful when planning an activity.

Find out their experiences of coming to this country; who are the guardians, as some children live with relatives other than their parents; what kind of community do they live in and how the community can help in this endeavor; educational level of the parents/guardians will also give you a better understanding of your population, etc. Another essential factor that will be addressed is the importance of having an appreciation of the cultural differences when working with Latino parents and to avoid assumptions that can alienate your immigrant parents.
