DACA: Message from Superintendent Skelly

Head shot of Superintendent SkellyEarlier this week, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was rescinded by the president. DACA provided a way for young, undocumented immigrants brought to this country by their families to have the opportunity to work hard, graduate, go to college, begin careers, and lead meaningful lives as contributing members of our global society. It is estimated that nearly 200,000 young Californians are under the program’s umbrella; many of them have only known the United States as their home.
It seems appropriate to reiterate the San Mateo Union High School District's (SMUHSD) commitment to educating all students, regardless of their race, ethnicity, heritage, national origin, immigration status, or other characteristics. Every student we serve deserves our best efforts and we are committed to their success. 

We want all students and our community to know that all students have full access to our schools and are protected from pressures and intrusive actions that would disrupt or impair their education.  The District complies with all Federal and State laws governing the privacy of student records including the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

We remain dedicated to all of our students and will do everything we can to ensure their success.
