Englewood Schools Responds to DACA Decision

In response to yesterday’s announcement that President Trump will be phasing out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, Englewood Schools would like our students and families to know that we remain committed to providing an environment where all students feel safe and have the opportunity to belong and thrive, regardless of their immigration status. The District does not collect any information whatsoever about student or family immigration status. Additionally, the US Supreme Court case, Plyler V. Doe, expressly prohibits the District from denying students the constitutional right to a free public education based upon their immigration status. The District is committed to upholding the current laws and practices, including the protection of students' civil rights. In doing so, the District cannot and would not allow access to our students, families or records to anyone other than those authorized or required by law.
