Protecting Our Students' Legal Rights

Englewood Schools pledges to protect the constitutional and legal rights of all of our students and families. The District does not and will not allow access to our students or to student/family information by those not permitted or authorized by state or federal law. The District does not collect any information whatsoever about student or family immigration status. 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, along with all other school districts and numerous other entities, continues to monitor the national climate. 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 or families or records to anyone other than those authorized or required by law.
