Some Los Angeles Unified School District students facing deportation will receive legal help from lawyers who work for the district.

Under a plan approved by the school board last week, the lawyers are now allowed to represent one student at a time between one to three hours a week. The lawyers must make up any loss of work time for the district.

Students have to juggle court dates and concerns about deportation while trying to adjust to new schools in a new country, sometimes with few or no English skills.
