Hispanic and Latino Community Outreach

Catholic schools have served students from a variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds and have done a tremendous job educating all children. Today, 20.7% of students in Catholic schools are racial minorities, and Hispanic/Latino students represent 16.8%. This number is only poised to grow as we intentionally reach out and welcome these Catholics into our schools. The following learning resources, best practices, links, tools and templates are shared to help Catholic schools as they work to open their doors and welcome the Hispanic and Latino community.

Latino Educator and Administrator Development Program (LEAD)
This new program aims to strengthen the Latino voice in both the classroom and school level nationally. This initiative is designed to invite, advance and retain Latino educators in Catholic schools, as well as develop a better understanding of the opportunities and challenges that exist in this landscape.
