Immigration and refugee services
BC strives to connect students, families, and the community to resources that will create a self-sufficient life. We do this by partnering with the community to offer resources and services that eliminate barriers. Integration funds help us to connect students with rigorous course work and opportunities to connect with other students while also focusing on the needs to close the education achievement gap.
Refugee services are available through partnering collaborations and service councils as well as partners. For those seeking assistance with Spanish interpreting services are also available through school Family Resource Rooms.
