Across the United States, and especially in Hawai’i, the diversity of our school communities is increasing. Families in Hawaii come from many different ethnicities and immigrant groups and a range of socioeconomic conditions. Examples of family types include heterosexual two-parent families, single-parent families, grandparent-led families, LGBTQ+ families, and multigenerational families. They include Native Hawaiians, transient military families, homeless, and families with special health and education conditions. Each of these groups has different needs. It is up to educators to learn about, get to know, partner with, and accommodate the needs of children and their families from these diverse situations. This module includes information about many of these groups with specific strategies and ideas for partnering with diverse families.
