Community Resources for Immigration

Message to the Community from Superintendent Mary Kay Going, September 8, 2017:

Dear Moreland Families,

The current administration formally announced this week that it will end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program while also leaving Congress a six-month window to possibly examine the policy.  DACA is a program established under the prior administration in 2012 that grants a form of temporary protection from deportation known as “deferred action” to undocumented immigrants who came to the United States before the age of 16, have resided here since 2007, and meet other requirements.

The Moreland School District wants to assure our students and their families that we are deeply committed to the inclusion of all people, regardless of race, ethnicity, heritage, national origin, immigration status or other characteristics.  We remain committed to protecting the rights of every child to an education, as outlined in our state constitution.   

Please review the resources below.  The District will continue to post resources for our community as we receive them from Santa Clara County and the State.  

Thank you,

Mary Kay Going
