Education for All

  • There has been increased interest in the rights of students and our school communities with regard to potential immigration enforcement actions by the federal government.

    San Juan Unified’s community-developed Strategic Plan identifies a core set of shared beliefs that unite and guide our efforts to serve students and families. Among those beliefs are the ideas that every person is unique and has equal worth, that diversity is a valuable asset that strengthens and enriches our community, and that everyone benefits when people willingly contribute to the well-being of others.

    It is these beliefs that our district will use as guides in our continual support of all students regardless of age, race, sexual orientation, gender identity or immigration status. Our focus on educating and inspiring each student to succeed and contribute to our radically-evolving world will not waver as we work to provide an educational environment free from anxiety and disruptions. 


    DACA Termination

    San Juan Unified remains committed to serving all students and families regardless of immigration status. The September 2017 announcement that the federal government would end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) program is concerning as it has the potential to disrupt families and their students' education. 

    The district does not ask immigration status of any student seeking to enroll in our schools nor do we ask for or track the number of students or staff participating in DACA. San Juan Unified staff remain committed to working with elected officials to help them understand the impact that DACA has on our students and schools so that they can seek a solution that supports families and student learning. 

    The federal government has implemented a six month delay in ending DACA. If you participate in DACA and your benefits end between Sept. 5, 2017 and March, 5, 2018 you must file an application for renewal no later than Oct. 5, 2017. 

    To the right are a number of resources for those who wish to learn more about DACA or who are seeking to file renewal applications prior to Oct. 5, 2017.
