Message from PVUSD Superintendent Dr. Rodriguez & PVUSD School Board in response to the suspension of DACA

A message from PVUSD Superintendent Dr. Rodriguez & PVUSD School Board in response to the suspension of DACA:


With the suspension of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, PVUSD publicly reaffirms our commitment to all students, including all undocumented students. We stand strongly beside them dedicated to protecting their right to equitable educational and programmatic services regardless of their immigration status so they may be college and career ready and able to fulfill their individual dreams and aspirations. 


We are working with PVPSA to ensure that we provide any additional resources necessary to support our students. If you are aware of any student or family in need of such support, please let your site administrator or your social emotional counselor know so we can mobile resources.


Let us continue to follow our Board Resolution 16-17-25, Support of Immigrant Students and Families, which explicitly states our unwavering commitment and support of Dreamers and other fragile student populations.  We will follow our Board Policy 5111.3 (a) developed a few months ago which protects our students and families.  Attached is the complete version of the Board Policy. 


Below you will find the portion of the policy that protects our students should Immigration and Customs Enforcement Office come to our sites:


It is the general policy of the District not to allow any individual or organization to enter a school site if the educational setting would be disrupted by that visit.  Because the Governing Board believes that ICE activities in and around schools, early education centers, and adult school facilities would constitute a severe disruption to the learning environment and educational setting for students, any request by ICE to any District personnel to visit a school site shall be immediately forwarded to the Superintendent for review and consultation with legal counsel, to ensure the safety of all students, as well as compliance with Plyer v. Doe and other applicable state and federal laws.


All requests for documents by ICE to the District or any District personnel shall be immediately forwarded to the Superintendent for review and consultation with legal counsel and the Governing Board (in closed session if necessary), to ensure thesafety of all students, as well as compliance with Plyler v. Doe and other applicable state and federallaws.


Thank you,
Michelle Rodriguez, Ed.D.
