Children of live-in domestic workers will be able to enroll in schools in the districts in which their parents are employed at least three days a week, under a new law signed last week by California Gov. Jerry Brown.

A related measure requires districts to adopt a policy for probing student residency before investigating any student. That law also prohibits videotaping and photographing students in the process.

The bill grew out of a case last year in the Orinda district, in which a 2nd grader whose mother worked as a live-in nanny at a home in the district was expelled. The child lived in the home of her parent's employer, with her own bedroom and bathroom, according to the Contra Costa Times.
