Second Interim Report
Santa Rosa City Schools Now "Safe Haven" for Immigrant Families
The Santa Rosa City Schools Board of Education on January 11, 2017 voted unanimously to become a safe haven school district. The school board adopted a resolution to reassure students and families that schools offer a protected space from immigration enforcement officers and that existing laws protect students' records from being disclosed.
Under federal and state law, all children have the right to attend public school, regardless of the immigration status of the students or their family members. The safe haven resolution requires that any access to school sites by an immigration enforcement officer would need written approval from the Superintendent. It also directs the Superintendent to protect the data and identities of students, students' family members, and district employees to the fullest extent possible provided by the law.Safe Haven Resolution
Santa Rosa City Schools ya es "Refugio Seguro" para las Familias Inmigrantes
El 11 de enero de 2017 los miembros de la Mesa Directiva de Santa Rosa City Schools votaron unánimemente para aprobar una resolución con el fin de asegurar a los alumnos y familias que las escuelas son lugares protegidos contra los agentes del Servicio de Inmigración y Control de Aduanas y que las leyes existentes prohíben la divulgación de la información que se guarda en los expedientes escolares de los alumnos.
Bajo las leyes federales y estatales, todos los niños tienen el derecho de asistir a una escuela pública, cualquier que sea el estado de inmigración de los alumnos o de los miembros de su familia. La resolución para establecer el refugio seguro requiere que un agente del servicio de inmigración obtenga el permiso de la Superintendente por escrito para poder entrar a cualquier instalación escolar. Además, la resolución exige que la Superintendente proteja los datos e identidades de los alumnos, miembros de la familia del alumno y empleados del distrito escolar hasta el máximo punto permitido por la ley.
