Parent Outreach and Involvement:

IUSD provides multiple ways for parents/guardians of English Leaners and immigrant students to be involved in the work of the school and the learning of their children. Seminars, workshops, and course offerings provide opportunities for parents/guardians to access district and community resources, to develop an understanding of the learning process, to learn and practice effective strategies that support student learning at home, to establish home/school connections, and become active participants of the learning community.

Parental Notification and Language Support:

IUSD provides required annual communication to parents/guardians in a timely manner.  IUSD has a team of district employees who can provide language support (interpretations) for parents in multiple languages for a variety of settings and meetings.

In an effort to increase communication and understanding between parents and IUSD, parents are invited to attend theTimely Topic series. Each 90 minute, interactive meeting is specifically designed for parents new to the District.
