INFORMATION
Training Overview

What would you do if immigration officers came for your students? Learn how to legally handle various scenarios.

Students and staff returned for this school year facing a different landscape for immigrants, changed by the pandemic and the Biden administration. Many of your students may be the children of legal immigrants or parents holding valid non-immigrant visas, while others are undocumented.

Under the Supreme Court’s ruling in Plyler v. Doe, public schools are obligated to educate them all. You need to understand how federal laws govern inquiries into students’ immigration status and what to do if immigration officers appear at the schoolhouse door.
