Support of Undocumented Students and Families

CUSD has reaffirmed our strong commitment to support and protect all our students and their families, regardless of immigration status.

Summary of our district’s commitment to all students

  • The District will not collect information regarding students’ and families’ immigration status when enrolling students in the students in the District.
  • When the District or any of the District’s school sites receives a request for information that implicates individual privacy rights (including with respect to immigration status and religion), the District shall take all legally permissible actions to protect the privacy rights of its students and and families.
  • The District will not release information regarding immigration status or related matters contained in student records to federal agencies or other authorities (e.g., ICE) without the permission of the student’s parent or guardian or pursuant to a judicial warrant, subpoena, court order or as otherwise required by law.
  • The District will work closely with other local government agencies and community groups to ensure that all students and families, including those that are undocumented, are able to receive education in a safe and supportive environment.
  • That a federal effort to create a registry based on any protected characteristic, including national origin or religion, would be antithetical to the United States and California Constitutions and the values of the District and if authorities seek to involve the District in the development of such a registry, the District will take all legally appropriate steps to resist such involvement.
  • The Superintendent is directed to work with District staff and counsel to develop policies and procedures implementing and advancing these principles.
