Including parents as partners in their child's education has been proven to have a powerful impact on student achievement. Reaching out to parents of ELLs is especially important, since families who are new to the country may not be familiar with how schools in the US function and what their role in the school should be. Communication with parents of ELLs can be challenging due to language barriers, cultural differences, and long work hours of some parents, but the rewards can be great. 


Below you will find links to free bilingual resources to help you make meaningful contact with the parents of your English language learners. These handouts are intended to be copied and shared, so if you've been wanting to reach out more to ELL parents, this is a great place to start!
