Schools with Discriminatory ID Policies as of May 30, 2014

In April, 2014, the ACLU-NJ identified 136 school districts that require overly restrictive forms of identification for an adult to enroll a child in school, contrary to state and federal law. The ACLU-NJ sent a letter to these districts advising them to change their policies or face litigation. As of May 30, 2014 most districts had changed their policies. The ACLU-NJ filed lawsuits against seven of the districts that did not. Districts that had not changed their discriminatory policies are listed below.
