School Home Assist

School Home Assist (SHA)

With the primary responsibility of a SHA being to help with communication between home and school, some of the ways schools can utilize them are to:

  • Provide interpretation at parent meetings/conferences;
  • Call parents to invite them to meetings/relay school information;
  • Assist parents with filling out school forms;
  • Assist schools with written translation or oral interpretation of school-wide letters to parents;
  • Administer the Native Language Proficiency (NLP) test to ELL students who qualify;
  • Accompany school staff on home visits;
  • Serve as a cultural resource to schools;
  • Serve as communication support between schools, ELL families, and community resources.
