Immigration Status and Schools

With the much-publicized travel ban, District 91 would like to clarify the law regarding immigration status and school enrollment and assure ALL parents that they and their children are safe and welcome in our schools.


All children in the United States are entitled to the same access to educational opportunity regardless of their or their parents' immigration status.  The immigration status of parents and/or their children is not relevant to the enrollment decision.  Public schools may not, at any time, make any inquiry into the immigration status of parents or their children.  This protection is assured under the law and District 91 is committed to upholding this law.
