The goal of the Refugee School Impact Program is to help
refugee students successfully transition to a new way of life, and
specifically, help students adjust to their new educational environment –
socially and academically. Clark County School District
(CCSD) works collaboratively with Catholic Charities of Southern
Nevada’s Migration and Refugee Services (MRS) and the ECDC African
Community Center (ACC) in the provision of services to refugee students. Grant funding supports the programs for refugee students at various schools throughout the Las Vegas Valley.
To keep schools informed of these students to provide needed
services and support, CCSD, MRS and ACC consistently work to identify
refugee students and monitor their needs.
The goal of refugee students becoming socially and academically
successful will be positively impacted by meeting the objectives of
providing support services, engaging refugee students in both
specifically designed school activities and regular school activities,
and by monitoring student achievement.
