Every Child in Focus—Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month
In May, National PTA’s Every Child in Focus campaign centers on Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month. Using the PTA National Standard for Family-School Partnerships, we will explore ways PTAs can welcome and support the families of Asian American/Pacific Islander children in the school community.
We have created resources on the unique challenges Asian American/Pacific Islander children face and ways PTAs can better support Asian American/Pacific Islander families in achieving student success.
How Your PTA Can Better Support Asian American/Pacific Islander Children
- Read our PTA One Voice Blog for PTA success stories and additional resources. You can also share your blog! We want to hear local and state PTA success stories on supporting children with special needs and how you promote an environment that is welcoming to all children and parents. Use our blog share tool to tell us your story.
- Share the Parents' Guides to Student Success. These standards provide clear, consistent expectations for what students should be learning at each grade level in order to be prepared for college and career.
