KHSD board to discuss new student immigration policy

News

The Kern High School District is expected to approve changes to the way it deals with bullying, especially as it pertains to students and their immigration status.

The board will discuss and vote on policy updates reflecting Assembly Bill 699, which went into effect Jan. 1, preventing discrimination in education because of immigration status.

The bill requires that no student will face discrimination, harassment, intimidation, or bullying in the district’s programs and activities based on immigration status.

The bill also requires that school staff have procedures in place should immigration officers come to campus to interview or arrest a student or to access a student’s educational records or information. 

KHSD’s meeting will be held Monday at the district Board Room at 7:00 pm. The district office is located 5801 Sundale Ave.
