Resources for Immigrant Students & Families
Sun Prairie Schools are a welcoming place for all students and families, regardless of their immigration status.
At the Sun Prairie Area School District:
We stand by all of our students, staff, and families.
The Sun Prairie Area School District celebrates and values our diverse community. We support and are inclusive of all students, staff, families, and community members of all races, ethnicities, faiths, national origins, immigration statuses, political viewpoints, abilities, sexual orientations, and gender identities.
We stand by our students with disabilities and their families. We will continue to staunchly protect the rights of people of all abilities.
All children will be safe and loved in our schools…..Every Child, Every Day.
