Abstract

Large groups of asylum-seeking refugees have settled throughout California. Communities large and small have met their arrival with a range of emotions, and a mix of support and social impacts. This qualitative study takes an in-depth look at a district program, Family and Community Engagement, to inquire about what services exist in schools to help students and families adjust to the new education system in the United States. This research may provide valuable insight to school districts that seek to better serve and support asylum-seeking refugees and other newcomer families.
