Latino Listening Project — Engagement

Community voices are at the heart of the Latino Listening Project. Reporters want to hear from students, parents and community members about  how Idaho's education system is serving Latino youth — and we want to answer any questions you might have. 

Below you'll find resources created to answer parents' questions, videos highlighting Latino youth, and information about  how to get in touch with us if you have a question to ask.
