How can I support my child if he/she receives homework in Spanish?

Regardless of the language homework is assigned in, the purpose of homework is to give students a chance to practice independently. If you are finding that your child is having difficulty with homework, please let their teacher know so that it can be modified/adapted at a level that your child can be successful. Empower will also offer parents resources to help with homework, including the option for your child to attend an after-school program.

My child is enrolled in the Spanish Immersion program, will the teacher communicate with me in English if needed?”

Yes! Most parent/teacher conferences don’t involve the child, and the teacher will communicate in English. The teacher will try to limit conversations in English held in front of the child.

Are Empower teachers credentialed?

Yes! All of our teachers are highly-qualified and hold teacher credentials.
