SMUHSD Family Engagement Coordinators
In 2017, the San Mateo Union High School District invested in part- and full-time bilingual (Spanish speaking) family engagement coordinators at each school site to help increase involvement in our schools, and to serve as liaisons between often marginalized families and our schools.
Family Engagement Coordinators Serve to:
- Make families feel welcome
- Help families understand our school system
- Advocate for families
- Facilitate educational events (see upcoming events to the right and recently recorded events below)
The development of these positions coincided with an influx of Latino immigrant families, and unaccompanied minors predominantly from Central America to the communities we serve.
If we can support and engage families, this will help students stay in school, find academic success and find a social community of support.
