Summit Scheduled For Friday, March 24, At The East Las Vegas Community Center
Councilman Bob Coffin will host the Latino Network of Southern Nevada 2017 Leadership Summit – Part II from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Friday, March 24, at the East Las Vegas Community Center, located at 250 N. Eastern Ave. On-site registration and continental breakfast begin at 8 a.m. The event is free and open to the public and those wishing to attend are encouraged to preregister atwww.lasvegasnevada.gov/latinonetwork or by calling 702-229-6242.
Parents and high school students are invited to the summit to participate in discussions on “The Power of Family Engagement and Student Success,” as well as discussions on the possible changes to the “Different Action for Childhood Arrivals” and “Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents” immigration policies, and a discussion on the status of school deconsolidation. The event encourages families with youth in high school to become fully engaged with their education. Information and resources from the school district and other community organizations will be offered.
“There is no doubt that when parents show daily interest and concern for their children’s education and welfare in school, the children do better,” Councilman Coffin said. “Problems get solved, priorities get reordered, homework gets done. School success becomes a focus, because its importance is reinforced by mom and dad.”
The Clark County School District and the city of Las Vegas are sponsoring the event.
