Oakland Unified School Districts (OUSD)
Oakland Unified School District Refugee & Asylee Student Assistance Program (OUSD RASAP) assists refugee and immigrants families with school enrollment, placement, and support for new arrival students and their families. The Refugee & Asylee Program identifies, supports, and tracks newly-arrived refugee students, providing crucial services in support of their school integration and academic success. By working together with community partners and other OUSD departments, their program allows for school sites to both refer students and reach out to the program for assistance when needed. Specifically, the program offers school enrollment assistance, school orientation, tutoring, family engagement, and targeted educational support for refugee students and families during the summer. High-need students are provided with educational case management and social emotional learning opportunities for refugee & asylee students, such as partnerships with Soccer Without Borders and Opera Piccola, a community arts organization.
