The Sacramento City Unified School Board of Education will consider whether the district should be officially known as a "safe haven" for children who are undocumented immigrants or who are the children of undocumented immigrants.
As a "safe haven" the district would restrict the sharing of information that could be used to determine the immigration status of a student.
Jessie Ryan is a school board member. She says the agenda item also emphasizes existing district and federal policy.
"We do not look at immigration status in determining whether we are going to provide all of our students the tools they need to be successful in life. Beyond that, 2011 ICE policy says that ICE shall not enter campuses and sensitive spaces like schools."
Ryan says Presidential campaign rhetoric has made some undocumented students afraid.
The district and the Los Angeles Unified School District have agreed to submit a joint letter to President-elect Donald Trump with a list of "American ideals."
The Sacramento school board is scheduled to vote on the designation this evening.
