On Dec. 6, 2018, the newspaper Hoy en Delaware showcased the latest DelawareCAN initiative, MiEscuelaDE, a free online resource in Spanish to help parents across the state understand their children’s public school options:
DelawareCAN: The Delaware Campaign for Achievement Now created MiEscuelaDE, or “My School Delaware,” as part of its Juntos Delaware initiative with support from the Arsht-Cannon Fund.
“We built this website because we know Spanish-speaking families experience inconvenient, inconsistent, sparing or no access at all to well-translated school choice resources,” said Atnre Alleyne, executive director of DelawareCAN. “Even the state’s school choice platform lacks translated resources and instructions. Parents shouldn’t be expected to guess their way through information they need to make the best choices for their families.”
