Where will my child go to school?

Posted by:

As a homeless parent you have the right to decide whether your child should:

-Stay in the same school your child attended before becoming homeless (school of origin)
-Transfer to the school closest to your current location

The student can stay in the chosen school for as long as the student is homeless, or until the end of the school year, if the student becomes permanently housed.

It is up to the parent to decide which school is in the child's best interest. The decision should take into consideration factors such as:

-Continuity of instruction
-Length of stay in your current location
-Time and distance to transport your child to and from school.
