Meet our Family Engagement Manager:
Mercedes Carbajal  

Downtown College Prep firmly believes that we can only accomplish our mission of college success by working closely with students and their families. We view family engagement as a shared responsibility where schools actively engage families in meaningful ways while focusing on student learning, development, and community. We recognize and respect that every parent is able to be involved at different levels due to unique circumstances such as family, work, health, and even cultural reasons. Regardless of each family’s particular needs, we encourage every parent/guardian to play a role in supporting their child’s education. Therefore, our schools offer different ways to partner with us as a parent/guardian. Email:  Call/Text: 650-479-4914

P-EBT Extension

P-EBT is a federal program. The California Department of Social Services (CDSS), in collaboration with the California Department of Education (CDE), received approval to operate the program in response to COVID-19 related school closures. P-EBT provides food benefits to help families with children who are eligible for free or reduced-price school meals through the federal School Breakfast or National School Lunch Programs.

Over the summer of 2020, P-EBT provided food benefits to eligible school aged children for the months of March, April, May, and June 2020. Recently, California was approved to provide additional P-EBT benefits to children who already received P-EBT benefits for the months of August and September 2020. This is referred to as the “P-EBT Extension.”

Children eligible for P-EBT extension benefits:

  • Previously received P-EBT benefits for the 2019-20 school year;
  • Are attending a California K-12 school for the 2020-21 school year; and
  • Are assumed to be attending school virtually or via a hybrid model of virtual and in-person instruction for the 2020-21 school year.

Under the P-EBT extension, each eligible child will receive a new P-EBT card with P-EBT benefits for the months of August and September 2020. These new P-EBT cards will be mailed directly to families in late October through late December. Eligible families do not need to apply to receive P-EBT extension benefits.

For more information visit:, see attached flyer or if you have questions about your P-EBT benefits, call the P-EBT Helpline at (877) 328-9677. Please note, they cannot assist you with questions about P-EBT eligibility or issuing new benefits.
