Concurrent Session #29 (Monday, July 21, 2014)
How do you support all students in their pursuit of their college dream? Supporting your students’ dream of a college education is the goal of every GEAR UP grant but not all students may see college access as an easy road. According to the Immigration Policy Center, there are approximately 1.1—1.4 undocumented students under age 18 living in the US and these same students are in your schools. This session will explore the issue of undocumented students; understand the immigration status of your students and how to help them on the road to college access.
