Parent~Student~Resident Organization


The Parent~Student~Resident Organization (PSRO) represents a community of refugees and immigrants coming from more than a dozen countries and four continents. Its purpose is to improve the quality of education for their children by increasing parent/student engagement in the schools.

Since forming, the PSRO has gotten the School District to:

  • Ensure it will provide interpretation in all the languages for parents (i.e., Karen, Kisagua. Somali and Swahili)
  • Accept the student's home language as meeting the requirement for having a language other than English 
  • Track refugee students to better monitor their progress
  • Form a task group that includes parents, alumni and students to study best practices for working with refugees and make recommendations to the School Board
