Homeless Information

If you and your children are in a temporary living situation, your children have the right to stay in the school of origin or choose the attendance area school where you are moving; receive transportation to and from your school of origin; immediately enroll in school, with or without school or health records; and/or get free lunch and school fee waivers.

You and your children are eligible for these rights if you share housing with others because of loss of housing, economic need or domestic violence; live in a shelter or motel; live in a campground, park, car or abandoned building; and/or are without a permanent address.
