Fairfax school finds new ways to connect with immigrant students
Fairfax schools adopted TalkingPoints to bridge language gaps and help underprivileged families overcome technological and communication barriers, allowing parents to send and receive translated texts in many languages, including Spanish, Korean, and French.
“The app was really nice because they would just send them a text message to their phone and they could easily just respond right there and then,” Cabrera said. “And I feel like that also made it less formal. It was more casual, and they could just text me, whenever [the parents] had a question, which a lot of my parents did, like they would just quickly send me a text and I would get it. So, I think it just made the communication easier.”
