Parent Engagement Program
Promoting Parent Leadership and Participation in Schools
The Latino Civic Alliance has partnered with Highline School District to support Latino families within the school district.
OUR MISSION By incorporating a culture-infused approach, we help parents develop communication tools to improve dialogue with school staff and provide parents with knowledge they need to participate in their child's education, advocate for themselves and their families and work together with schools to ensure Latino families thrive.
4 CORE BELIEFS:
- All families have dreams for their children and want the best for them
- All families have the capacity to support their children's learning
- Families and school staff are equal partners
- The responsibility for cultivating and sustaining partnerships among school, home, and community rests primarily with school staff, especially school leaders
