The SUHSD Special Projects provides comprehensive services to our most vulnerable students by advocating for successful transitions, re-engagement, and social-emotional awareness, leading to academic achievement and maximizing post-secondary options.
National and statewide research show that a high percentage of youth who are removed from their homes and placed in the foster care system experience both short and long term challenges in school. Traumatic histories of abuse and neglect compounded by frequent changes in foster care placements contribute to issues in the classroom and/or reduced academic achievement.
Our primary mission is to ensure foster students achieve academic growth and success during their academic career in the Salinas Union High School District.
