Principal's Statement on DACA

Dear FUHSD community,

Earlier this year, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) formally announced that it has initiated the phase out of the program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). In light of this announcement, our District wants to reaffirm our commitment to supporting all students and families. 

The DACA program has nearly 800,000 participants, including 15,000 here in Santa Clara County, according to data from the Migration Policy Institute. This recent announcement and the resulting uncertainty around DACA has most certainly created anxiety for some students and families in our schools. We want to make sure our students and their families know their rights, and that we are here to support each and every student regardless of immigration status. Our employees continue to stand unified in our belief that every student deserves access to the highest quality public education. In February 2017, our Board of Trustees passed Resolution #1617-12 In Support of Students and Release of Records to address some of the uncertainty that was felt by members of our school community and reassure students and families, whether documented or not, that the Fremont Union High School District is a safe and welcoming place to attend school for all students (Resolution #1617-12 is supported by Board Policy 5125 and Administrative Regulation 5125). We remain optimistic that the members of Congress will work together over the coming months to craft a solution that will offer students enrolled in the DACA program the stability and protection necessary to pursue their education with confidence and security. 

Established by President Barack Obama in 2012, the DACA program granted temporary protection from deportation to undocumented immigrants who came to the United States before the age of 16, have resided here since June 2007 and met additional requirements. According to last week’s announcement, the Trump administration will stop considering new applications for legal status dated after Sept. 5, but will allow any DACA recipients with a permit set to expire before March 5, 2018, the opportunity to apply for a two-year renewal by October 5. Individuals whose permits expire on March 6 or later will begin to lose their protections and work permits as soon as they expire. Please review the DHS’s Frequently Asked Questions and other resources below which have been compiled to assist our families and schools and provide relevant information. FUHSD will continue to share information with the community as we receive it, and provide resources as appropriate. 

Sincerely,

Greg Giglio, Principal

Estimada comunidad FUHSD, 

Esta semana, el Departamento de Seguridad Nacional (DHS) anunció formalmente que ha iniciado la eliminación del programa conocido como Acción Diferida para los Llegados de la Infancia (DACA). A la luz de este anuncio, nuestro Distrito quiere reafirmar nuestro compromiso de apoyar a todos los estudiantes y sus familias.

El programa DACA tiene cerca de 80,000 participantes, incluyendo 15,000 aquí en el condado de Santa Clara, según datos del Instituto de Políticas Migratorias. El anuncio de ayer y la incertidumbre resultante alrededor de DACA ciertamente han creado ansiedad para algunos estudiantes y familias en nuestras escuelas. Queremos asegurarnos de que nuestros estudiantes y sus familias conozcan sus derechos, y que estamos aquí para apoyar a todos y cada uno de los estudiantes, independientemente del estado de inmigración. Nuestros empleados siguen estando unidos en nuestra creencia de que cada estudiante merece el acceso a la más alta calidad de la educación pública.  En Febrero de 2017, nuestra Junta de Síndicos pasó Resolution #1617-12 In Support of Students and Release of Records para abordar parte de la incertidumbre que sentían los miembros de nuestra comunidad escolar y asegurar a los estudiantes y familias, documentados o no, que el Distrito Escolar Fremont Union High School es un lugar seguro y acogedor para asistir a la escuela para todos los estudiantes (Resolution #1617-12 is supported by Board Policy 5125 and Administrative Regulation 5125). Seguimos siendo optimistas de que los miembros del Congreso trabajarán juntos durante los próximos meses para elaborar una solución que ofrezca a los estudiantes inscritos en el programa DACA la estabilidad y protección necesarias para continuar su educación con confianza y seguridad.

Establecido por el Presidente Barack Obama en 2012, el programa DACA otorgó protección temporal contra la deportación a inmigrantes indocumentados que llegaron a los Estados Unidos antes de los 16 años de edad, residen aquí desde Junio de 2007 y cumplieron con requisitos adicionales. De acuerdo con el anuncio de ayer, la administración de Trump dejará de considerar nuevas solicitudes de estatus legal fechadas después del 5 de Septiembre, pero permitirá a cualquier receptor de DACA con un permiso expirar antes del 5 de Marzo de 2018, la oportunidad de solicitar una renovación de dos años para el 5 de Octubre. Las personas cuales permisos expiran el 6 de Marzo o más tarde comenzarán a perder sus protecciones y permisos de trabajo tan pronto como expiren. Por favor revise las Preguntas Frecuentes del DHS y otros recursos a continuación que se han compilado para ayudar a nuestras familias y escuelas y proporcionar información relevante. FUHSD continuará compartiendo información con la comunidad tal como la recibimos y proporcionará los recursos apropiados. 

Sinceramente,

Greg Giglio, Principal
