Resolution To Support Immigrant Students

As a result of OVNV parents organizing and demanding that they be heard, the Orleans Parish School Board officially adopted a resolution to support immigrant students. The resolution declares that OPSB strongly supports undocumented children’s right to a free public education and that schools are safe zones for ALL students. It also urges the boards of EVERY charter school in Orleans Parish to adopt a similar resolution. This official statement of the board’s position is an important step forward for our Latino students and families throughout the city!
