TO THE ADMINISTRATOR ADDRESSED:
USDE Fact Sheet regarding Unaccompanied Children (UAC)
The U.S. Department of Education has shared
with the Texas Education Agency (TEA) and all state education agencies the
attached fact sheet regarding educational services for immigrant children and
those recently arrived to the United States. Many of the issues covered in
this fact sheet mirror the information provided by TEA General Counsel David
Anderson during his recent testimony to the Select Committee on the Fiscal
Impact of Texas Border Support Operations.
Please be advised that, under the
direction of the Governor’s Office, TEA continues to coordinate with various
state agencies on this issue. If necessary, additional information will be
shared as school districts proceed with enrollment and with the start of the
new school year.
Commissioner of Education
