Alhambra , CA United States

At its meeting with the board of education on Tuesday at 6:00 p.m., the Alhambra Unified School District will adopt a resolution in support of the one presented by Jose Sanchez’s American government class at Alhambra High School.

However, while the students’ resolution called for specific measures like requiring universal background checks and raising the age of purchasing firearms to 25 years old, the district’s resolution calls for more funding of mental health resources and calls on the federal government to work with President Trump to enact stricter gun control legislation.

The school board will also consider a resolution on immigration enforcement, affirming students’ equal rights at school regardless of immigration status and preventing staff from collecting information about immigration status. The resolution also calls on the superintendent to develop procedures to handle records requests by law enforcement officers related to immigration.

The school board will also consider resolutions defining an appropriate interactions between employees and students and to increase statutory fees on new residential and commercial/industrial development within the district. The increased fees would be used to construct or renovate facilities to educate new students being brought in by these projects.
