File Attachment:
Summary: Mt. Diablo Unified School District will be applying for the CalNEW grant from the California Department Of Social Services. The grant is for districts who have high numbers of students who are immigrants that are socio-economically disadvantaged, as well as Unaccompanied Undocumented Minors. If awarded, this money would be used for a Coordinator position that would be serving students and their families with enrollment, social services, and supporting them in integrating smoothly into our schools and communities. In addition to the Coordinator position, we would be able to fund another CWA position as well a community liaison to work specifically with this high needs population.
