Immigrant and Refugee Family Resources
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.

For our immigrant and refugee families in Columbus City Schools, several local organizations are ready to provide free information and access to assistance and services. We have listed several of these organizations below.


If you need immediate assistance in Spanish, Somali, Nepali, or Arabic please contact our English as a Second Language/ESL Call Center at 614 365 8802.
