Family and community engagement is an essential part of student success. With COVID-19 related school closures and the transition to distance learning, many schools are working to sustain engagement with English learner (EL) families and communities, and to ensure two-way communication to build school and community capacity.
In this podcast Maha Abdelkader, an Education Program Specialist from the Office of English Language Acquisition, speaks with Gabriela Uro from Council of Great City Schools and with Shelly Spiegel-Coleman from Californians Together about best practices and examples for continuous EL family and community engagement in the current remote environment.
