OUR TESTIMONIALS

The information they provide us is great, with this I have been able to help my nieces and my neighbors to pass the opportunity to understand the educational system of this country. For me, it has given me more reasons to go back to school, because education helps us to be better. Thanks to the USA School System.

INSPIRATION

HOW WE STARTED

Liliana.jpg

Sistema Escolar USA was founded by a Latino mom with a background in communications who, through her own experiences, identified the lack of information for immigrant parents in the US and translated the necessary information to their language to make it accessible in a fun and easy way format. With this in mind and her desire to help the community, she founded Sistema Escolar USA LLC. 

Parents nowadays face many challenges regarding their kid’s success due to the vast amount of technology and information thrown at them. If you add to this lack of understanding due to a language barrier, those challenges are amplified.  Today, the Sistema Escolar USA LLC focuses on providing education to parents on all the topics related to their children, whether it is academic, social, emotional, cultural, even safety, and hope to bridge the gap, minimize these barriers and diminish the challenges that parents face in efforts to help them, with not just their involvement and awareness, but also with their kids’ education.

Workshop Facilitator

Blanca Rivas Lefort is from Mexico and has a BS in Business Management with a minor in Child Development. When she came to the U.S. as a young child, she experienced first-hand the difficulties of entering a foreign school system full of language and cultural barriers. Blanca believes that to help children be successful, parents must get involved in their education, which can only be done if they themselves understand the academic system.
