Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) STATEMENT

posted Sep 26, 2017, 6:30 AM by Brian Johnson


Recent actions in Washington DC have declared the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) as unconstitutional, meaning that Burlington Community School District’s children who may have been brought to the United States of America by undocumented adults no longer have the protections provided under President Obama’s administrative DACA order. With that stated, BCSD will do everything within our power to protect, educate, and provide opportunities for each and every child in our schools. Our mission statement reads, “Inspiring and challenging students through diverse opportunity.” while our vision statement clearly articulates, “Burlington Community School District strives to have a profoundly positive impact on each student’s adult quality of life brought about by students’ individual and collective educational experiences.”  Neither our mission or our vision profess anything other than our unwavering commitment to children. Students first. Staff always.

Dear Parent,

Part B of the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) requires states to report the percent of parents with a child receiving special education services who report that schools facilitated parent involvement as a means of improving services and results for children with IEPs.

The Iowa Department of Education is gathering these data as a census for both students with and without an IEP using a brief three-question survey.
