Trustees with the Vallejo City Unified School District will consider designating the district’s schools as “safe haven zones” during a Wednesday meeting in direct response to the recent presidential election.
The draft resolution directs VCUSD Superintendent Ramona Bishop, and/or her designee, to not cooperate with Federal Immigration authorities, except as required by law, and to notify parents of any immigration inquiry about their children which is submitted to the district.
The resolution also gives Bishop authority to “protect the data and identities of any student, family members, or school employee who may be adversely affected by any future policies or executive action that results in the collection of any personally identifiable information,” by the Trump administration.
The proposed resolution requires that immigration officials may not enter without prior written approval from the district superintendent, unless agents present a warrant signed by either a federal or state judge.
