HR School Board Reaffirms Equity Policy

The Hood River County School Board approved a resolution reaffirming their existing educational equity policy that requires immigration officials to have a warrant before going on to school property or accessing students.  Board Chair Mark Johnson says the resolution does not create any new policies, but the board wanted to publicly reaffirm what is already in place.  He said it reaffirms the board’s feelings on the “need to support all students regardless of point of origin or documentation status.”  School districts are required by federal law to provide all children within its boundaries equal access to a public education regardless of citizenship or immigration status, and cannot collect information about a student’s immigration status or that of the student’s family members.
