WASHINGTON — Citing “troubling reports” of school districts discriminating against children of immigrants in the country illegally, the Justice and Education departments on Thursday issued new guidance to schools on what identification they can demand of students trying to enroll.

In a letter to school administrators, the departments restricted the type of documents officials can demand. Schools have a right to verify a child’s residency in the district, the letter said, but they may not require parents to produce a driver’s license or Social Security number to establish they are in the country legally.
