New Ridgefield Schools Mentoring Program

The Ridgefield School District used it's Title III Immigrant funds to implement a mentoring program.  Based on the grant, 84 students who have been in the country three years or less were eligible for participation.  Twelve staff mentors worked with students and families for approximately ten hours during the program that ran from May 3 - June 15.  Mentors visited with students at their homes and in public spaces as well as ran a variety of programs and activities that students enjoyed.  Parents were able to talk with a school contact to get much needed information.  The District hopes to expand the mentoring program to more students next year.  For more information on the presentation, please click on the link below:
