Family Engagement Program
In an effort to increase the participation of our Spanish speaking families in their children's education here at Santa Barbara High School, we will be offering a series of free informational workshops and activities.
GOAL: To create a welcoming environment for all families, to encourage involvement and interaction, and to provide language equity, support and resources for our Latino families.
TOPICS: Parent skills-communication, family structure, alcohol and drug education and intervention, parent advocacy, navigating the school systen, A-G requirements, college admittance, financial aid, educational options, academies and special programs on campus, EDU training and community resources.
BENEFITS: Workshops/activities promote family involvement and interaction. Information is presented in Spanish which studies show helps parents/ guardians more actively participate when information is presented in their native language. The program will help strengthen ties between our Spanish speaking families, the school and the community.
COST: Workshops are free. And free childcare is available.
