“We are developing an SEL 'Family Resource Center.' During the school day, it will be a resource center for Spanish-speaking families. In this safe and comfortable space, parents can meet with our bilingual liaison and attend parent-teacher conferences. We will provide resources on health, immigrant rights, special education and community programs, as well as leveled readers, access to computers and information about school events, processes and procedures. After school, we will use the space to host evening community classes, SEL professional development and teacher training, as well as tutoring and mentoring for students.”
