JPS Extends Support to Immigrant Families

August 8, 2019

 Jackson Public Schools

Recent raids and arrests by federal immigration officials in Mississippi have heightened a sense of anxiety for families and students. Jackson Public Schools is committed to educating children regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, country of origin, or a student’s immigration status. We are working closely with the Mississippi Immigrants Rights Alliance (MIRA) and community partners to provide resources and supports to ensure all of our families and students feel safe in their school communities.

We are dedicated to ensuring inclusive and welcoming schools. For information, assistance or counsel related to immigration, please contact MIRA at (601) 968-5182.
