About the Program

YEAR: 2022
In the summer of 2020, Henrico County Public Schools initiated a partnership among multiple public and private entities to better communicate with and meet the needs of our growing population of multilingual residents and those speaking limited English. The partnership was formed and operates under the following mission: We seek to support all students, including immigrants, refugees, new Americans and limited English-speaking families. By bringing together individuals, nonprofits, school officials, county officials, advocates, students and families to enhance communication with our diverse communities, elevate and collaboratively address their needs and advocate for the diverse community. HCPS believes that our diverse community is one of our greatest strengths and seeks to increase opportunities, equity and access for our students and families. In collaboration with HCPS’ Department of Teaching, Learning and Innovation, and the Office of Equity, Diversity and Opportunity, the partnership strives to share information between multiple entities to fully support the multilingual community in our area.. We began the partnership as a response to COVID-19 to ensure all school families received critical school information but have expanded to become a way for school, government, nonprofit, business and faith-based entities to work together to serve our community.
