Welcome to RISE-SF

Refugee and Immigrant Supports in Education (RISE-SF) is charged with increasing access to education for all immigrant and refugee students through the promotion of culturally and linguistically inclusive programs and services.

RISE-SF offers advocacy, consultation, staff training, and coordination of student services in two primary focus areas:

Newcomer Programming:
Newly arrived refugee and immigrant English Language Learners have particular educational strengths and challenges that necessitate specific supports and programming. RISE-SF can support schools in implementing “best practices” for this community, and is available for phone or in-person consultations.

Sanctuary Education:
As a sanctuary school district, SFUSD upholds every young person’s constitutional right to feel safe and supported at school, and strives to expand the scope of sanctuary so all families feel seen and affirmed. RISE-SF can support schools in ensuring their communities -both students and staff- are aware of their rights and prepared to defend them.
