Vallejo Times-Herald: Vallejo school district wins grants for counselors, ‘crossover youth’


Reflecting the dismal state of education funding in California, the Vallejo Unified School District has increased efforts to win outside money and is celebrating the recent acquisition of two grants — including one that targets students on probation.”These are students that have all the odds stacked against them,” Superintendent Ramona Bishop said of “crossover youth” during last week’s board meeting.

That’s what the Sierra Health Foundation calls students who are known to have been abused, neglected or suffered from trauma, have been involved in the child welfare system and have spent time in juvenile hall and the criminal justice system.
