With parents and administrators at the K-8 Healey School in Somerville, we've been working toward a toolkit of tools and strategies for schoolwide communication that reaches all families across lines of language, income, background, and tech access/training. In particular, we've been working on improving the "infrastructure" for low-cost translation and interpretation in a multilingual school.

Other tools include a wiki for school reform notes.
