Xavier Becerra, the California Attorney General, today issued guidance to schools on how to protect the rights of undocumented students:

The guide is designed to help schools better understand protections that safeguard the privacy of undocumented students and their families, and to serve as a model for local school districts…

“Every student, regardless of immigration status, is entitled to feel safe and secure at school,” said Attorney General Becerra. “In California, nearly half of all children have at least one immigrant parent. It’s our duty as public officials and school administrators to uphold the rights of these students so that their education is not disrupted.”

He also announced a checklist that could be used by immigrant families to know their rights. The announcement says it’s available in multiple languages. However, the link in the announcement only leads to the English-version. I assume they’ll fix that error soon (the Attorney General’s office just informed me they could be found here – scroll down)
