    VISAS

     

    It is the responsibility of the student/family to comply with the immigration laws of the United States. Since September 11, 2001, the Department of Homeland Security has implemented strict laws regarding students. Families must obtain the proper clearance.

    It is the responsibility of the incoming family to obtain the appropriate visa to enroll in public school. DUSD does not provide forms or applications for families to apply. 
     
    Families should have a green card or some documentation from the Department of Homeland Security or other federal agency. Families coming in on Non-immigrant status or on a tourist visa may not register.
