CUSD, in conjunction with Interfaith Services, wrote and received a grant from Carlsbad Charitable Foundation to expand services from Interfaith to Carlsbad High School families. These services connect families of students facing multiple barriers to case managers on campus to meet basic needs through their Family Self Sufficiency Program. Barriers may include homelessness, foster care, struggling academic performance, behavioral concerns, health challenges or family issues.

CUSD welcomes Brittany Krippner, Case Manager from Interfaith Services.
