The Helpful Guide To American Schools

    The Helpful Guide to American Schools was created to assist immigrant parents in their quest to support their children enrolled in local schools.  It provides general information on school policies, culture & norms, and is a tool to assist children assimilating to the American school system.

   The guide was created by Putnam CAP with the valuable assistance of the Social Workers from Carmel & Brewster High Schools- Karin Brenner (CHS), Henrietta Lodge (BHS).
