DHF Vecinos Unidos “United Neighbors” Celebrate Parent Training Graduation 11/18/15

Dolores Huerta Foundation Vecinos Unidos “United Neighbors”, in collaboration with the Lamont School District, continue ongoing efforts to improve educational outcomes by completing a 10 Week Parent Training Program to Promote Strategies for Authentic Parent Engagement

The research is clear that when schools and families support each other, students of all backgrounds and various abilities achieve at higher levels. The DHF Vecinos Unidos are bringing together parents, students, community members, and Lamont School District Administrators to increase active participation, communication, and collaboration between parents, schools, and communities with the goal of improving educational outcomes for low income, minority students in rural areas and educating the whole child to ensure student achievement and success.

The 10 Week Parent Training Program, which began on September 3rd. , provided families with the valuable tools needed to navigate the educational system and advocate for the best possible educational experience for their children. Workshops addressed the following topics: Strategies for Authentic Parent Engagement, Understanding and Getting Involved in the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP), Lamont School District Parent Center Classes, the Dolores Huerta Foundation & Lamont School District Partnership and more. Engaging and empowering parents, and students, to become actively involved in the educational process and policy will ultimately lead to significant gains across the board in student achievement.
