Stockton Unified Is a “Safe Haven”

At this week’s board meaning, Stockton Unified unanimously passed a “safe haven” resolution.

Nearly 40,000 students are enrolled at Stockton Unified, and 64 percent identify as Latino.

The resolution comes in response to State Superintendent Tom Torlakson’s letter issued late last year urging school officials to consider such measures in the wake of the Trump administration taking control of the White House.

The district joins other San Joaquin County districts, including Tracy Unified, Lincoln Unified, and the County Office of Education, in passing a resolution to protect undocumented students form federal agents.

Lodi Unified is considering a similar resolution of their own.
