President Trump's decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) on September 5, 2017, has generated fear and confusion among many San Mateo County students and their families. In response, the San Mateo County Office of Education has reconfirmed its commitment to supporting these students, their families, and the schools and districts that serve them.
