WEBINAR PRESENTATION

Supporting Newcomer Students through Parent Civic Engagement in Schools

This BRYCS webinar provides resettlement staff and refugee community leaders with information on how refugees can become more civically engaged with their local school systems. Opportunities such as providing input on budgets and weighing in on school board policies and regulations are discussed. Learn about refugee parental rights, such as receiving information in a language one understands, that impact civic engagement. Finally, learn about the new Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and how it may affect refugee students and families.
