BP 5111.3 Protection for undocumented students
Leyva-Cutler suggested adopting some of the language in ACLU’s model policy. Alper added that it should be made clear that the policy is limited to all federal agencies and excludes local law enforcement agencies. Leyva-Cutler also proposed including a provision that will allow children of detained parents to be taken care by a third party.

Sweat-free Procurement Policy
Leyva-Cutler explained that this policy was brought to her attention by the fair trade club at BHS which promotes the purchasing and procurement from countries that practice humane working conditions and pay fair wages. She added that the students are interested in participating in this process, so they will come back with a proposed policy. Participants talked about also including folks involved with purchasing and approving vendors for BUSD.
