1,745 times in the 2011-2012 school year. chris funk is the district superintendent. >> can you justify why police officers were used so often? >> well, i think if a student had a knife on campus, the default because of zero tolerance was to automatically have the student cited. if they found a bag of marijuana, they automatically had the student cited. >> are you saying there's more than 1700 incidents either involved drugs or a weapon? >> well, back in 2011, we had prol 24,000 students. >> the u.s. department of education doesn't require schools to release why students were referred to police. but much larger school districts didn't even come close to eastside union. for the same time period, oakland unified enrolled nearly 15,000 more students than eastside union but only referred 12 students to law enforcement.
remember, eastside union referred over 1700. >> i think that we had a practice here where we were relying too much on having the officer do the facilitation and the legwork versus the administration doing the legwork. >> funk was named superintendent in 2012. the district has since doubled the number of its counselors. social workers are on every campus and there's more than 1700 referrals to police dropped to 214 during the 2013-2014 school years. but those lower rates are still among the highest in the bay area and just like in 2011, minorities and students with disabilities were sent to police at disproportionately high rates. children with disabilities made up 10% of the population but totaled 25% of all students referred to law enforcement. hispanic children represented 47% of the population but 73% of all students referred to police.
>> that's an issue. we've got to solve that. >> reporter: the district hires local police officers to patrol nearly all of its schools. in fact, 6% of high schools across the country have officers or security right on campus. while the goal is to make schools safer, some believe students can actually be harmed when schools decide to involve police in cases of minor misbehavior. >> it's tragic. there are tragic consequences. >> chief laura garnett heads the probation department in santa clara keep the and says when is the child is put in the criminal justice system at an early age, they begin to identify as a criminal and are more likely to offend again. >> it's really, really hard to get out of the system. >> students can even get juvenile citations like the one adrian received which are equivalent to an arrest and go on a child's criminal record. those students then have to meet with juvenile probation officers. >> i think we see a lot of case
has we think seriously? >> she says close to 70% of the time her officers decide the offense isn't actually serious enough to get referred to the district attorney for criminal charges. even in those cases, much of the damage is already done. >> the child can still be left with a criminal record? >> it will still show an arrest on their rap sheet, yes, absolutely. they've been arrested. if the case comes to us, they've been arrested whether they were put in handcuffs and brought to us or just given a slip of paper by the police. they've been arrested. >> is that fair? >> well, i mean, no. i don't think it's fair. >> but it's the reality for adrian. >> ready? go. >> a 15-year-old with autism and a criminal record. >> it makes you want to collapse. and just stop being. because of so much pain. you don't want to the exist
anymore. >> ada says her son's probation officer closed the case since it wasn't a serious offense. adrian will even cleaned off his initials with so and water. but ada says the probation officer never mentioned adrian would have a criminal record. ada didn't know till we told her. that's when she called the probation department. >> i just found out right now the two years later. >> a juvenile court judge can order that i an chide's criminal history be wiped clean but there are no guarantees. and by law, you can't start the process until the child turns 18. ada says she often cries herself to sleep worrying about adrian's future. >> tears. because you don't know what's going to happen with your baby. >> and to find out how the your child's school how often your child's school sends students to police, check out an easy to use statewide database we created and posted on nbcbayarea.com.
just click the investigations tab. their viewers can check out part one of our investigation that aired last night. >> that's a good tool resource for people to check it out. >> very helpful. >> if you have a tip for anyone our investigative unit give us a call at 1-88-996-tips. >> let's switch gars now. october is just around the corner. the possibility of some rain maybe. here's jeff. >> it's finally starting to feel like it outside. very refreshing today and tomorrow. we keep the cooler temperatures and also the clouds. for the morning forecast, down in the 50s throughout the bay area. overcast skies from the north bay down to the south bay. potentially drizzle in san francisco and the peninsula. i want to take you next to the satellite radar picture. we've been showing you this stream of subtropical moisture pushing across northern california. it hasn't meant anything for rainfall for us. >> soledad monterey, carmel, we've had a few spotty showers over the past 36 hours.
to the live doppler scan. as we put a stop on the radar, nothing in terms of rainfall for us but a little bit of spotty activity near santa cruz and there's definitely more energy offshore. i think overnight we may get a few spotty showers near the immediate coastline in santa cruz and might have something tomorrow near morgan hill. you can see where all this cloud cover is coming from. it's this trough of upper low pressure spiralling in this subtropical moisture that keeps the clouds for wednesday and cooler temperatures. then by thursday's forecast, that trough of low pressure moves inland just to the south and with it being so close, i've now added in the possibility of isolated showers because this could move a little bit more off to the north and again bring us a little bit of activity. the best chance would be right across the sierra. this weekend we're good for a 5 to 10 degree warmup. temperatures warmer but we should stay out of the 90s for the most part and no chance of any triple digits coming our way saturday or sunday. let's take you into the microclimates throughout
wednesday. a cool day throughout san francisco. 65 in the marina and back into the financial district. 66 for the peninsula. 75 in palo alto. there's the possibility of maybe spotty showers in pacifica and 63. so close again to the subtropical moisture stream. san jose a little bit of sun. high clouds and back towards morgan hill once again close to the subtropical moisture tap and 77 for the possibility of a few spotty showers. north bay, east bay and tri-valley, 70s all around. and instead of above average temperatures like we've had for the entire summer pretty much, pleasanton tomorrow in the tri-valley will be at just 75. a nice day in oakland at 71. we have those hotter temperatures once we hit friday's forecast returning in the south bay leaving us with 89 degrees. eventually by sunday 78. we've been keeping track of any rainfall coming down the pipeline. october 7th andth still a slight
