Refugee Family Engagement Project
A fantastic new resource
for refugee parents has recently become available. The Arizona Department of Economic Security (DES) videos AZ
Public Schools for Refugee Families are available from the links below in 6 different languages (English, Arabic, Burmese,
Nepali, Somali and Swahili).
The videos are between 35 minutes (English Version) and 45
minutes long (other languages), and are very informative to
refugee parents about Arizona K-12 School basics. The videos are intended to fill a great need among refugee parents in Arizona and can assist teachers,
administrators and staff who engage with refugees at their school.
Refugee parents can now have access to learn about their new school
system at their convenience:
- at the public library
- at the school
- on their smartphone, or
- wherever they have access to the Internet
