The English Learner Family Toolkit is a free, online resource with answers to questions families may have about public schools and education services in the United States. Each chapter consists of 5 sections: (1) General Information, (2) Family and Student Rights, (3) Questions to Ask School Staff, (4) Tips, and (5) Resources.
The English Learner Tool Kit (now updated to align with ESSA) helps state and local education agencies help English Learners (ELs) by fulfilling these obligations. The Toolkit has 10 chapters (one for each section of the DCL), and contains an overview, sample tools, and resources.
The Newcomer Tool Kit provides (1) a discussion of topics relevant to understanding, supporting, and engaging newcomer students and their families; (2) tools, strategies, and examples of classroom and schoolwide practices in action, along with chapter-specific professional learning activities for use in staff meetings or professional learning communities; and (3) selected resources for further information and assistance, most of which are available online at no cost.
