  • Frequently Asked Questions

    In our diverse community of more than 157,000 students, we recognize that many of them and their families struggle with intensely personal questions, concerns and fears about the national landscape regarding immigration. Our critical mission – and our obligation under the law – is to ensure that our schools are welcoming and protective spaces where a student’s race, ethnicity, religion and immigration status do not create any barriers to that child’s education. To assist this mission, we want to share answers to the following questions regarding immigration status and our commitment to protect students from discrimination and harassment.
