Currently, schools are sending home a variety of messages and information so that parents can support their children during distance learning. An argument is made that the children of those Hispanic parents are falling behind due to the language barrier. Thus, this capstone project focuses on the communication between a school and its Hispanic parents and how to improve it, so that it positively affects the performance of students. Considerations of the issue should include the perspectives of school administration, parents, and students. The three action options that emerged from interviews with school administration and parents include: hiring a translator, making phone calls home, and hosting parent informational workshops. Based on an analysis of the data and the relevant research literature, an action option is recommended that is intended to benefit the school, parents, and students.
