Safety for All Resolution

Resources to Support Students from Immigrant Families

 

Norwalk-La Mirada Unified is home to an ethnically diverse student body and is committed to the success of all students irrespective of their ethnicity, race, or immigration status.  Undocumented students not only have a right to attend school in California, but are mandated to attend school pursuant to compulsory attendance laws. The U.S. Supreme Court has held states may not deny access to a basic public education to any child residing within the state, whether residing in the U.S. legally or not. Further, all students have a right to be in a public school learning environment free from discrimination, harassment, bullying, violence, and intimidation.

 

This page provides resources to students and families who may be anxious, or have questions, about a changing landscape of immigration policies and practices in our country. 

 

Please note that the resource documents posted are only for information purposes and visitors to the site should seek legal advice when necessary.

 

SAFETY FOR ALL STUDENTS AND FAMILIES RESOLUTION

 

Norwalk-La Mirada Unified remains steadfast in the position detailed in our Safety for All Students and Families Resolution which affirms the District's commitment to our schools being safe places from any effort to deny civil or human rights.  We do not collect, and will never ask about, a student's immigration status.  Our charge is to educate the students of the District and to ensure that all students, regardless of immigration status, have equal access to an education under the laws of the United States.
