SALT LAKE CITY — The Salt Lake City School District will do “everything in its lawful power” to protect students’ constitutional and legal rights and to ensure schools are not disrupted by immigration enforcement actions, according to a resolution reaffirmed Tuesday by the Salt Lake City Board of Education.
The board voted to support the 2017 Safe School Resolution, which states the school district cannot and does not inquire about students’ immigration status, nor their parents’ or guardians’ status, as part of the school admissions process.
The article goes on to state the following:
The resolution was largely drafted by former board President Heather Bennett, who died in March. The board decided not consider a new resolution but to reaffirm the earlier version to honor Bennett’s contributions as its primary author and a board leader.
The board’s action joins local boards of education across the country endorsing like policies in the face of stepped up immigration enforcement nationwide affecting students and families.
The board also adopted the Resolution for the Protection of Children, which notes the “deep concerns of its constituents about the treatment of migrants and asylum seekers, especially minors at the U.S.-Mexico border.”

The reaffirmed resolution notes that families have “expressed their concerns about sending their children to school out of fear that deportation will occur while their children are in school, or that immigration officials may involve our schools.” https://t.co/n46HdjeLEF
