Family, Community, and School Partnerships
Children succeed when their families, communities, and schools work together to help them create and achieve their dreams. The EL Program actively seeks to cultivate partnerships with families and community members to support our students. Family members may volunteer in classrooms, organize school events, interpret or translate in their native languages, tutor after school, and support students' learning through collaboration with teachers. The EL program also needs families to provide input in the school and program decision-making process.
Families with any questions, comments, or concerns — or who wish to volunteer — may contact the International & EL Welcome Center at 434-296-6517 and visit our EL Family Support webpage.
