DACA update

posted Oct 12, 2017, 11:56 AM by Lela Rondeau
As you have likely heard, on September 5, 2017 President Trump ordered an end to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The DACA program provided undocumented persons, who came to this country as children and met other conditions, to be provided deportation deferrals and temporary work permits. California is home to 223,000 DACA recipients. 

The Association of California School Administrators has put resources together at www.acsa.org/undocumented. The resources include DACA renewal application scholarships, free application assistance, fact sheets, and a FAQ. 

Attached to this post are ten things educators can do to assist student recipients of DACA. 

NEA has a great resource page to help educators and support professionals in the classroom and beyond.
