Students Impacted by Immigration Status (California School Board Association)
- "California’s public schools have a unique mission to help all students succeed in college, career and civic life. This responsibility is reinforced, in a legal context, by the landmark Supreme Court decision in Plyler v. Doe. In that ruling, the Court held that school districts must not discriminate on the basis of race, color, or national origin, and that students not be barred from enrolling in schools on the basis of their immigration status or that of their parents. Immigration status can create emotional stress and fear for both undocumented students as well as for students who are citizens or residents but have family members or friends who are undocumented.
- The rights and responsibilities of school districts to educate students impacted by immigration status have received renewed attention due to recent developments at the federal level.
- Listed here are resources that school districts can use to better serve all students, regardless of immigration status."
