Research shows that parents are unequivocally needed to engage in their children’s education. When parents and families are engaged, students are almost always more successful in their educational journey. Having an interpreter for non-English speaking families provides parents with an opportunity to regularly engage in school events and become partners in their child's academic success.
The Office of Federal Programs & Grants will be supporting and piloting the use of interpretation devices to reach our non-English speaking families. The school communities will learn how to break the language barriers utilizing interpretation resources for families in their native languages during parent workshops. By strategically empowering parents and families, the Newark Board of Education can help strengthen and further support school communities. Let’s go to Work!
