Caring Across Communities

The Center for Health and Health Care in Schools has released a new publication, Helping immigrant and refugee students succeed: It’s not just what happens in the classroom.

Problematic behaviors exhibited by students have a direct impact on student success and the importance of engaging families for student academic achievement has been well documented.

The challenges are more pronounced among immigrant and refugee students and their
families. Eileen Gale Kugler and Olga Acosta Price share a number of successful strategies used to engage immigrant and refugee families in support of their children’s mental health.

The publication, Helping immigrant and refugee students succeed: It’s not just what happens in the classroom offers insights gained from grantees of the Caring Across Community national program.
