Children and Youth in Transition


Our office works to support the continuity of education of students in transition including: students in foster care, students experiencing homelessness, students who are military dependents, and students who are refugees.  The office serves more than 19,000 students each year, accounting for more than 14 percent of the total population of our entire district.

Children & Youth in Foster Care

Our office serves students living in foster care including group homes.  We work with school sites and community agencies such group homes, foster families, social services, and postsecondary education and training programs to coordinate support efforts.

Children & Youth Experiencing Homelessness

Our district served 5,588 preschool through high school students experiencing homelessness during the 2013-14 school year. We offer services that include resources to assist students and families in navigating the educational system so they continue to receive a quality education during this transitional time.

Children & Youth from Military Families

San Diego is home to the Navy's largest homeport. Over 13,000 students from military connected families attend schools throughout the district. Nine of our schools are located on or near military installations. We offer services specifically tailored to aid students of families in the military.

Refugee Children & Youth 

An average of 200 newcomers arrive in San Diego County each month. Many of these newcomers are school-age children who are enrolled in San Diego Unified School District.  Our office works with schools to ensure students are enrolled in school and have access to needed services.
