How do I support my child at home?

The DLI Parent Advisory Council
This council consists of parent representatives active in their school PTA and parents of students in the DLI programs. The parents were nominated by their school principal and by other parents in the DLI program to participate on this council. As an advisory council, they represent the constituents at each site by contributing information, conducting surveys, sharing ideas district wide and raising concerns to the district coordinator. Monthly minutes will be publicized on this site from each meeting and parents are encouraged to contact their parent representative with concerns regarding the program.
Parents who are not representatives are welcome to schedule a time to present at the council meeting by contacting Kathy Einhorn, firstname.lastname@example.org.
