California State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson has announced that the department has set aside $3.5 million in federal funding to assist schools that are experiencing an increase in unaccompanied immigrant children during the current school year.
“We don’t make immigration policy in our classrooms; we help every child who comes through our doors,” Torlakson said. “With our help and support, I am confident that California’s schools will be able to provide a safe haven for children waiting for authorities to reunite them with their families.”
Torlakson said the $3.5 million represents federal Title III funds to help school districts that may have experienced a significant increase in immigrant students. The funds may be used for improving instruction, providing tutoring and intensified instruction, and conducting community participation programs. School districts are eligible when data demonstrates a growth of 3 percent in the qualifying student population as compared to the average during the two previous years.
