Anaheim Union High SD Votes for Sanctuary District

The Anaheim Union High school board voted unanimously this week in favor of a sanctuary policy that would protect all students, regardless of immigration status from federal officials.

AUHSD is one of several districts that have passed such resolutions, and there is expected to be more in the future.

In the resolution, trustees will “work closely with the cities of Anaheim, Buena Park, Cypress, La Palma, and Stanton, the County, as well as other State and local municipalities, including law enforcement and community organizations, to ensure our students and families are offered a protected space.”

The resolution cites the City of Anaheim’s designation as the City of Kindness as well as the district’s own designation of District of Kindness and Compassion.

The district enrolls more than 31,000 students, according to data from the California Department of Education.
