Immigrant Families: Strategies for School Support
Elizalde-Utnick, Graciela
Principal Leadership, v10 n5 p12-16 Jan 2010
As the immigrant population in the United States steadily increases, so does the need for schools to support immigrant students and their families. Providing support serves the dual purpose of assisting the families and fostering a collaborative home-school relationship that benefits everyone. Principals can work with their student support personnel to understand the issues and identify the resources, systems, and professional development necessary to meet the needs of immigrant students and their families. School professionals are in a position to offer assistance to immigrant families in need, including home-school collaboration, school-based and community services, and instructional support. Immigrant students can also benefit from social-emotional support services and multicultural vocational interventions. This article offers strategies for supporting immigrant families and students.
