HISD DACA Statement

Houston ISD has always been, and always will be a welcoming district regardless of immigrant status, race or income. The decision made by President Trump to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is very disappointing and of great concern to HISD.  The mission of public schools is to create opportunity for all children, not for some.  All of our students have a constitutional right to equal access to education regardless of any circumstance that is no fault of their own. Our schools will continue to be safe havens for all students.

HISD is a diverse and inclusive community that believes in the power of education, we will continue to support all of our students, including those covered under DACA. Our schools will continue to be safe and positive learning environments that promote student learning and development versus discrimination and fear.
