Caregiver Engagement: Advancing Academic and Behavioral Outcomes for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students in Special Education
Whitford, Denise K.; Addis, Aaron K.
NASSP Bulletin, v101 n3 p241-255 Sep 2017
The Every Student Succeeds Act encourages home, school, and community partnerships as a method for improving academic achievement. Districts who seek federal funding must provide outreach to all caregivers within the district, making meaningful efforts to attract those with the greatest barriers to engagement. This review provides a thematic analysis of methods for cultivating home and school partnerships with caregivers of students who are culturally and linguistically diverse in special education. Emphasis is placed on the roles and responsibilities of school principals based on the development of culturally responsive school leadership. Student impact, as well as recommendations for practice are provided.
