On January 10, 2017, the U.S. Department of Education published a resource to support educators and families in ensuring the success of immigrant students. The Resource Guide includes two parts: the Resource Guide: Building a Bright Future for All and Handbook for Parents, Guardians, & Families: Building a Bright Future for All.
From the U.S. Department of Education blog post, Ensuring Education for All Children:
"For most children, school is their home away from home. There they form friendships, socialize, grow, and learn. Children and their families rely on teachers, principals, and other school staff to nurture and protect them when away from home. And families and educators have a shared responsibility to work together and ensure that schools are safe environments for all, including our youngest and most vulnerable children. We can best meet this responsibility when we have a clear understanding of policies and resources that can support the creation of safe learning environments, and ultimately, children’s development and learning. . ."
