Migrant Parent Programs for Family Literacy

Migrant Parent Programs for Family Literacy
Title I, Part C—Migrant Parent Programs focuses on Family literacy, which brings together children and parents in an educational environment to facilitate and nurture the learning relationship between them.

Family literacy works to better the educational performance of kids by creating a learning partnership between teachers, schools and parents, says the IA Department of Education. Research has found that students with involved parents, no matter the background or income, have a higher likelihood of earning higher test scores and grades, attend school regularly and go on to postsecondary education.

According to Child Trends, the Even Start family literacy program under Title I, Part B, Subpart 3:
~focuses on kids from birth through age seven and their families.
~provides funds for family literacy programs including early childhood education, adult basic education and literacy training, and parenting education.
~SEAs offer competitive grants to LEAs and give priority to families in high-poverty areas.

Providing a perfect fit for Title I and Title III parent involvement programs for Hispanic parents, The Latino Family Literacy Project has been coming to the rescue of thousands of children and their families in 19 states (and growing!). Teachers and staff learn how to provide a step-by-step parent involvement program for family reading, vocabulary development and ESL.

For teachers or staff who cannot attend the in-person training workshop, The Project also offers webinars that are grade-level specific for the implementation of programs for the infant/toddler, preschool, elementary, and middle/high school levels. Now is a good tome to take advantage of the all-inclusive special offer of two free webinar trainings when you purchase your grade level-specific program materials.
