Robla School District Partners With United Way


It's hard enough to do well in school normally, but imagine if you were hungry or homeless? For many kids, wondering where the next meal is coming from is more important than dreaming of which college you'll one day attend. A partnership between the United Way and a local school district is working to change that.

Robla School District is home to more than 2,500 students who reside in a lower income area of Sacramento. More than 90 percent of students in the district receive free or reduced lunch and 20 percent experience housing stability challenges. The United Way has teamed up with Robla to keep kids in school and on track through grant-funded programs that provide financial stability for families, access to college savings accounts, a special reading program and food and water for students.

Today on Insight, we'll talk with Robla School District Superintendent Ruben Reyes and United Way California Capital Region CEO Stephanie Bray about the partnership, what makes it unique and how it's helping students and families in the district.
