Homeless Education

A homeless child, as defined by State law, may attend the District school that the child attended when permanently housed or where the child was last enrolled. A homeless child living in a District school’s attendance area may attend that school. A homeless child is defined as one lacking adequate night time residence and includes: children sharing housing with friends and relatives due to financial hardship, children who have a primary nighttime residence that is a public or a private accommodation not designed for human habitation, children living in cars, parks, substandard housing, shelters, and migratory children. Transportation shall be arranged according to State law. If a dispute arises regarding a homeless child’s rights, contact the School District Homeless Education liaison.
