Through CalNEW» ( California Newcomer Education and Well-Being ), NSDI supports refugees and other eligible school-age students by facilitating educator and parent meetings, which are especially critical during periods of enforced distance learning. Between 2018 and 2019, CalNEW services impacted 39 newly arrived students from six different countries ( Burundi, Congo, Haiti, Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda ). Fifty-one percent ( 51% ) of these students were enrollees at middle schools located in the Crawford, Hoover, and Kearny clusters.
