This workshop will direct schools on how to develop a plan to help families facing this issue.

As our country promises to crack down on illegal immigration, schools with both large and small immigrant communities are considering how they can care for children whose parents could be detained and deported. This issue has created much stress for students and families as they think about their futures and is the cause of some students being emotionally distraught to the point where it affects their academic success.

What can schools do to be proactive and relieve some of this stress for students and families?

Representatives from Centro Hispano and Voces De La Frontera will be leading the day to help schools understand how they can help and plan with families affected by this issue.  

Audience: District and school administrators and other educational professionals, including teaching staff

Cost: Free for CESA 5 Title III Consortium Districts,
