We All Belong: Safe and Welcoming Schools For All

On February 2, 2017, the Davis School Board approved a resolution providing a clear and transparent statement that DJUSD shall be a place where all students, employees and families feel welcome and safe regardless of their immigration status, race, color, ancestry, national origin, ethnic group identification, age, religion, marital or parental status, physical or mental disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or gender expression.

Specifically, the resolution addresses procedures for responding to federal immigration enforcement action as well as policy changes around data collection on student enrollment. The resolution marked an important, first step to begin the process of examining current policies and procedures, educating school employees, and working closely with community partners to ensure that all students and families, including those that are undocumented or marginalized, are able to receive education in a safe and supportive environment.
