Settlement Workers in Schools

The Settlement Workers in Schools (SWIS) Program offers school-based settlement services by providing newcomer students (elementary or high school) and their families with information and support on issues related integration into the new community.  Information on schools, education, community resources, and family resources- immigration, language training, health services, family support, transportation, recreation housing and employment, all within the local area.  SWIS worker’s responsibilities include connecting with newcomer families and students and collaborating with teachers to ensure that the needs of newcomer students are addressed and provided with enough assistance as needed within the SWIS worker’s capacity. 

SWIS workers can also make referrals on issues such as learning English, finding a job, housing, finding basic needs and health practitioners, and enrolling in the school system.  SWIS workers are in place to support student success and achievement.
