Building Partnerships with Immigrant Parents
Sobel, Andrea; Kugler, Eileen Gale
Educational Leadership, v64 n6 p62-66 Mar 2007
In 2004, immigrant-rich Annandale High School in the Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C., launched a focused effort to bring more parents of students from immigrant families into school leadership. Nearly half of the parents of Annandale High students are immigrants to the United States--and they come from more than 80 different countries. Parents from various immigrant communities were invited to join parent leadership seminars given in English or Spanish; other programming was targeted to other immigrant communities most heavily represented at the school. Sobel and Kugler share strategies the school learned from the school's two-year effort, with special attention to communication strategies that were most effective at involving parents.
