¡Hola Familias!

At Revolución Educativa we believe that when families and school staff work together to form strong partnerships students have a greater chance of having an enjoyable learning experience and the opportunity to reach their fullest potential. You, as a parent, caregiver and/or mentor, have an important role to play in the education of your child…ultimately, you are your child’s first teacher and life-long advocate! 

At RevEd, we understand that sometimes it can be hard to know how to best advocate for your student and how to navigate education systems. Some of us didn’t go to school in this country, so it’s natural (and common) for us to feel lost and unsure about how we can engage in our children’s educational experience. We know that your students do best when you are part of the conversation…and we know how much you care about your children and that it can be hard to raise concerns sometimes.

Whether you have questions about your student’s performance, have concerns about their experience at school, if you need to advocate for language access services, or want to get more involved as a parent/caregiver, if you have questions about bullying, special education services, or simply want to ensure your student is challenged creatively enough to thrive, the steps to advocacy are the same.

RevEd endorses the National Parents Union model for parent advocacy:

Throughout history, leaders of change have brought people together.  People became leaders by bringing people together with common interests.  Together they set the conditions to build the courage to confront and amplify the inequities they were experiencing.  Sometimes, system leaders react to this by retaliating against the person(s).  Here is some advice if that is a concern for you.

Resources to advocate for your student.

  • English Language Learners: Children who speak a language other than English at home are oftentimes classified as English Learners, and sometimes, even if they are fluent in English, they may be initially classified as such. Parent engagement with the school is very important to understand the services, supports and programs your student will be part of if classified as an English language learner.

  • Bullying: “Bullying” means intimidation, unwanted aggressive behavior, or harassment that is repetitive or is substantially likely to be repeated and causes a reasonable student to fear for his or her physical safety or property; substantially interferes with the educational performance, opportunities, or benefits of any student without exception; or substantially disrupts the orderly operation of the school.

  • Limited English Proficient Parents & Caregivers: You have rights! If English is not your preferred language for school-family communications your school must communicate with you in the language you designate as your preferred language.
