Immigration Protection

  • In December 2016, the Pasadena Unified Board of Education joined California educational institutions in approving the resolution 2386 “Safe Zones for Students Threatened by Immigration Enforcement.” Our schools will continue to be the anchors of our neighborhoods, where all students and their families are welcomed, valued, and supported.
