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 low-cost translation and interpretation in a multilingual school. See the Parent connector network, where bilingual parents use phones, Google forms, and a hotline we made, to help get information to and input from immigrant and low-income families. Other tools include a wiki for school reform notes, and our partners in the PTA have agreed to work on training parents on email.

See the Parent Connector Network page to explore our full set of schoolwide communication efforts. See the wiki page for a discussion of that additional tool!
