Schoolwide communication toolkit
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 translation and interpretation in a multilingual school. See the parent connector network, where bilingual parents use phones, Google forms, and a hotline to help ensure that information reaches immigrant and low-income families who share a school. Other tools include a wiki for school reform notes.
