    Homeless Parent/Guardian

    Parents/Guardians who become homeless have the right to keep their child/children in the school where the child/children attended when permanently housed or recently enrolled. Parents/Guardians also have the right to enroll their child/children in any school that non-homeless students who live in the attendance area in which they are living attend. Guidelines to consider in making a school placement decision in the best interest of the child include:

    • Keeping the same instruction
    • Quality of instruction
    • A student’s need for a specific program or services offered
    • Age of child/children
    • School placement of family members
    • Length of anticipated homelessness
    • Likely area of family’s future housing
    • Safety of the child
