LAPS considers draft policy on privacy of immigrant students

-A A +A
By Wren Propp

Following approval of a resolution to guard the privacy of immigrant students by the Los Alamos Public Schools board earlier this month, on Thursday the board will take up first drafts of a policy and a regulation on the subject.
The policy and regulation discussions, along with a report on Los Alamos Middle School academic progress and programs are slated for review by the board at its monthly work session, 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the Los Alamos Middle School, 1 Hawk Drive.
The board also plans to talk about guided discussions that have occurred throughout the district’s community on changing start times for high school students.
The proposed policy and regulation supporting students’ safe access to public education – regardless of their or their family’s immigration status – was the subject of a resolution adopted by the board earlier this month. The drafts are identified as the first reading for the board and aren’t currently designated for action on Thursday. Policies and regulations usually go through at least three public readings prior to a vote by the board, said Superintendent Kurt Steinhaus.
Without a state or federal law requiring local schools to help U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials, the board decided, with its resolution, that it would not do so without a warrant.
