Identification of Homeless Children
Based on the definition of homelessness developed under the Stewart B. McKinney Homless 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 school.
