What school staff should do if ICE shows up at the school?
From our Legal Department: A school employee should tell ICE agents that any request they make will have to go through the General Counsel’s Office. If ICE comes to a school, the school leader should ask them to wait outside or in the office while our legal office assesses the request to determine whether the District is legally obligated to cooperate. Questions? Contact the Legal Department at 720-423-3915, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
