CUHSD and Del Mar High School received recognition at the Santa Clara County Office of Education National Bilingual/Multilingual Learner Advocacy Showcase on April 25. The showcase celebrated the rich assets of bilingual/multilingual learners and honored schools and programs that advocate for these students and families.
Del Mar High School’s Padres Unidos was recognized for engaging English Learner parents about high school expectations and supports, college requirements, career readiness, community issues and interests in order to empower families to make informed decisions about their child’s education. More than 70 parents participate in the Padres Unidos information nights and workshops.
The District was also recognized for establishing several resolutions that advocate for bilingual/multilingual students including the adoption of the California English Learner Roadmap, the Pathway and Biliteracy Awards and the My Name, My Identity Initiative.
CUHSD is proud to continue supporting these programs and initiative that drive one of our guiding principles, which is to focus on equity to provide all student with what they need to be successful.
