San José Unified welcomes all students, regardless of their immigration status. However, many of our students and families are experiencing anxiety and uncertainty as a result of some of the proposed policy changes at the federal level.
With that in mind, the Board of Education passed a resolution on February 9, 2017, supporting immigrant students and families.
As part of this resolution, San José Unified commits to working closely with other local government agencies and community groups to ensure that all students and families, including those that are undocumented, have access to accurate information and support.
Please see below for links to organizations and resources to assist you with any questions or concerns regarding immigration status, policy, or legal services.
