Staff Development

“What I enjoyed most about this training was the expertise of the trainer. It was great workshop – perfect background information, all research-based. I love the way it was structured for input, comments and deeper understanding for cultural differences. Very thoughtful. One of the best bilingual reading programs around!”

Proven best reading programs for English Language Learners

Lectura Books publishes books for Parent Involvement and are offered by The Latino Family Literacy Project, which requires staff development for effective implementation.

California Parent Programs

Our programs and curricula are fully bilingual (Spanish and English) and so are our bilingual books! Use the language you want without the hassle of translating. Each program is easy and fun to implement and perfect for school districts within California. We’ll help school educators get proper training in guiding Hispanic parents with involvement in their child’s education.

In-Person Workshops

A 3.5 hour training for the implementation of programs offered by The Latino Family Literacy Project™ is provided for teachers, administrators, bilingual aides, and parent coordinators of California. Once trained, our programs are a perfect fit for Hispanic parents for Title I and Title III Parent Involvement programs. Candidates need to be trained only once to be able to implement any of our programs, since they are structured with the same format, and can choose to implement any age-specific program.
