Published 8:29 am, Wednesday, June 7, 2017
STAMFORD — Superintendent of Schools Earl Kim will meet with immigrant families this weekend to address concerns about a possible presence of Immigrant and Customs Enforcement agents in the district.
The free information session will take place at 1 p.m. Saturday at Building One Community and is open to the public. The immigrant center, formerly known as Neighbors Link Stamford, is located at 75 Selleck St.
In February, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy advised public school districts and police departments to avoid taking special action against undocumented immigrants. He also asked superintendents to be the only point of contact for ICE officials seeking information about students.
Kim is expected to speak about Stamford Public Schools’ plan for handling ICE requests and he will be available to answer questions.
