San Bernardino City Unified Schools are now “Sanctuaries”

In a unanimous 7-0 vote, the San Bernardino City Unified school board passed a resolution making all schools a “safe place for all students and their families.”

Last year, Los Angeles Unified promised to uphold its own “sanctuary” policy for its more than 600,000 students after post-election protests swept the nation. Bassett Unified and Sacramento City Unified also issued similar declarations before the end of the year. Sacramento’s resolution was even used as an example in the State Superintendent Tom Torlakson’s call to action for all school districts earlier this month.
