Safe and Welcoming School District

Members of the Denver Public Schools Board of Education have unanimously declared their commitment to protecting the legal rights of all students, regardless of immigration status, national original, religion or race, with the Safe and Welcoming School District resolution. In the resolution, the board states the following:

 … the district shall do everything in its lawful power to protect our students’ confidential information and ensure that our students’ learning environments are not disrupted by immigration enforcement actions …

Immigration Rights FAQ

Denver Public Schools embraces our diverse students, families and communities. One of our district's core beliefs, found in our Denver Plan 2020, is that diversity is a community treasure and equity is at the core of our mission. We commit to building a culture that embraces the unique identify and potential of every child.

Our students speak more than 140 different languages and we proudly serve immigrant and refugee students in our six Newcomer Centers throughout our district. To respond to frequently-asked-questions about immigrant rights, we have created an FAQ in our 10 most common languages.

The district legal team created these responses to questions such as, 'What impact does undocumented immigration status have on my child’s education?' and 'If I am a parent or guardian and I am worried about being detained while my child is at school, what should I do?'

Supports for Students, Families

We are committed to providing equitable and inclusive environments where all our students feel safe and socially and emotionally supported. Today, in light of recent events surrounding immigration and refugees, we know some students and families are experiencing increased unease and uncertainty.

In an effort to relieve these concerns, we have prepared a list of supports that Denver Public Schools provides to students, families and educators during periods of trauma and stress. We encourage you to review the list and take advantage of the resources offered.

'When our students know they are safe and they are confident in their safety, they will be more successful as students and their success as students is so vital to our shared success as a community,' said Superintendent Tom Boasberg.

In addition, our Family and Community Engagement (FACE) helpline is available. Email face@dpsk12.org or call 720-423-3054.
