Latino Parent Leadership Development worked with 25 parents from five Title 1 schools within the St. Vrain Valley School District. The project provides parents with skills on how to navigate the school system, understand and interpret state assessments, and conduct parent needs surveys. In addition, the project teaches parents how to enhance communications between teachers and parents and provides a better understanding of the Colorado Content Standards. These parents will return to their schools and develop strategies to engage fellow parents within their schools. (2012-2013).
