Teacher’s Toolkit Update

With recent persecution of immigrants within a broken federal immigration system, DSM SURJ created a toolkit for Iowa teachers to support their immigrant students around four key areas: legal resource listings, home preparedness, in-school bullying, and mental health. The toolkit provides up to date links on key immigration issues and local resources. Des Moines public schools has 6000 ELL students and is a designated sanctuary district. The teaching staff is 90 percent white. SURJ consulted with national and local immigrant-led organizations to develop the materials. SURJ performed training workshops in local schools and ciruclated the toolkit throughout Iowa.
