Columbus is a welcoming and inclusive community.
Columbus City Schools reaffirms that this District is committed to supporting, educating, and keeping safe all of our students, regardless of where they came from or how they got here. Our schools and offices are places where children and employees should feel safe, supported, affirmed, and appreciated. We believe that all children have the constitutional right to equal access to education regardless of their immigration status or the status of their parents.
