What immigration status related P-12 student information does the district currently collect?

Posted by:

School districts are not required to and San Juan Unified does not collect information regarding a student’s immigration, citizenship or legal status, aside from the statuses of non-immigrant, international students enrolled in an educational program under certain visas. Schools are only required to collect information to satisfy certain admission requirements, such as proof of residency, none of which require providing proof of legal immigration status or social security numbers.

As required by the California Department of Education, the district does collect and report students’ country of birth in order to calculate the number of immigrant and English learner students in the state and to ensure compliance with the Title III provisions of the federal Every Student Succeeds Act.
