Latino Education Council:

The Latino Education Council is a non-profit organization which welcomes the opportunity to partner with the community and area school districts. They believe that together we can build a more equitable and inclusive public education system.

Their mission is to:

  • create a better future for the Latino Community by supporting their academic success;
  • provide appropriate and timely information and support for parents and teachers so that they can more effectively help students succeed;
  • assess schools’ progress in providing equitable educational opportunities for all students regardless of cultural or linguistic backgrounds so that they can succeed in school and in their lives;
  • and, support existing organizations and programs that support educational opportunities for Latino and ELL students so that they can successfully engage students and their parents and support them in helping their children succeed academically and in their lives.
