Identification of Homeless Children

Based on the definition of homelessness developed under the Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act:

A homeless individual is one who:

  1. Does not have a fixed, regular, and adequate residence
  2. Has a primary night-time residence in a supervised public or privately owned shelter
  3. Is temporarily staying with relatives of friends because of loss of job, other income loss, house loss
  4. Is staying in a motel, hotel, campground or similar setting due to lack of alternative adequate accommodations

It is the desire of the district to ensure that homeless children have access to a free and appropriate education comparable to the education of children who are non-homeless.

To complete a student residency questionnaire or to obtain more information, please contact a counselor at any of our schools.

For any disputes concerning homeless identification or placement please contact the homeless liaison.
