Mr. Portillo, Mrs. Martin and Mrs. Torres were all Corona-Norco Unified School District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC) members that later became DELAC board members. While their students are now redesignated as fluent-English proficient (FEP) they continue to participate in DELAC as visitors. They went through the Project 2 Inspire training that the District offered all DELAC members. They completed Levels 1-3 which qualified them to become trainers themselves.
They were offered a job by the California Association for Bilingual Education (CABE) to be the leads on the Project 2 Inspire sessions. They are being sent throughout California to do these presentations. In addition, they hosted several presentations at CABE 2015, delivering the following items:
How to help your child get to the University
The parent as a role model
CTE– another road leading to success as a professional
The importance of parental involvement
Parents helping parents in Special Education
Congratulations to our outstanding parents for their hard work and dedication to helping parents at CNUSD and throughout the state!
