Students with both limited English proficiency and interrupted formal education (SIFE) are increasing in today’s elementary and secondary schools. These students often come into the classroom as immigrant students who have arrived in the US as refugees; fleeing war, persecution and other situations that have had a negative impact on their educational experiences. This webinar will provide background information on Office of Refugee Resettlement programs and policies, along with an update on refugee populations coming into the US. Strategies and solutions in addressing the educational needs of students from refugee families will also be addressed, including innovative programming at the high school level for students who have gaps in their educational backgrounds.
