Padres ISLA

Padres ISLA focuses on the needs of Hispanic/Latino students' families. Parents meet at the beginning of the school year to discuss their visions for the parent community resource program and develop a list of needed resources. At monthly meetings throughout the year, a guest speaker shares information on a topic of interest identified by parents. Padres ISLA has hosted Spanish-speaking dentists, school psychologists, social workers, school counselors, and an immigration attorney. The program provides parents a safe place to ask questions and offers access to key resources essential to Hispanic/Latino families successfully navigating the school system, workplace and family life in the United States.
