Refugee Children in the U.S. Schools: A Toolkit for Teachers & School Personnel

Bridging Refugee Youth and Children’s Services (BRYCS), in collaboration with the Office of Refugee Resettlement, has developed Refugee Children in the U.S. Schools: A Toolkit for Teachers and School Personnel in order to support and assist schools with large number of refugee students. BRYCS provides expertise to schools in the areas of child welfare, parent involvement, social integration, and other topics related to the well-being of refugee children.

The toolkit will be regularly updated to address current issues facing schools serving refugee children. Tool one, released in 2009, focuses on grade placement, Tool two, released in 2009, focuses on collaborations between schools and refugee-serving agencies, Tool three, released in 2010 focuses on refugee child welfare, Tool four, also released in 2010, is Refugee and Immigrant Youth and Bullying, and tool five, released in 2011, is Federal Requirements to Provide Interpretation/Translation in the Schools
