Based on the United States Supreme Court decision in Plyler v. Doe, all children have a constitutional right to have equal access to public education regardless of their immigration status or their parents’ status. Federal guidance designates schools as sensitive locations where immigration enforcement actions should not happen. Federal immigration agents are NOT permitted to take any action or obtain any information unless indisputably required by law and following an intensive internal legal review.

Scroll to access services and resources for immigrant families, including family, health, special education, advocacy, legal and employment services. 

We at Collegiate Hall will always support, protect and advocate on behalf of our immigrant families.

Frequently Asked Questions

Advocacy

What impact does undocumented immigration status have on my child’s education?


None! Children have a constitutional right to have equal access to education regardless of their immigration status or their parents’ status.on go to app settings and press "Manage Questions" button.




Does Collegiate Hall or Tulsa Public Schools ask for a child’s immigration status when he or she enrolls?


No! Collegiate Hall and Tulsa Public Schools enrolls students regardless of their immigration status and without discrimination on the basis of race, color or national origin. Plyler v. Doe, 457 U.S. 202 (1982), established that the immigration status of a student is irrelevant to that student’s entitlement to an elementary and secondary public education.




Would the school district ever share our students’ immigration status with the federal immigration officials?


As mentioned above, we do not ask for students’ immigration status when they enroll. Even if we became aware of a student’s lack of immigration status, we would not share that information with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).




What does Collegiate Hall do to ensure that no student or family is discriminated against or harassed because of their race, ethnicity, religion or national origin?


Collegiate Hall has policies in place that prohibit discrimination or harassment of our students, families or employees on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, national origin and many other protected classes. View our District Policies.




What should I do if I feel like I have been the victim of discrimination or harassment?


Please report the behavior immediately to a supervisor, school leader or to the superintendent. Complaints and concerns can be filed using Tulsa Public School's TIPS reporting system at 918-746-6868. Collegiate Hall takes these complaints very seriously in order to assure that our schools continue to be safe spaces.




What should I do if I want to understand my immigration rights?


Only immigration attorneys can provide you with accurate advice about immigration status and how you can pursue any legal rights you might have. You can seek an immigration attorney from the American Immigration Lawyers Association.




Will there be any immigration enforcement actions on school grounds?


As of today, we believe that the federal government is still following guidance that designates schools as sensitive locations where immigration enforcement actions should not happen. For more details on sensitive locations, please review the Enforcement Actions at or Focused on Sensitive Locations document from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
