Anyone who, due to a lack of housing, lives in as shelter, motel, vehicle, campground, on the street or doubled up with relatives or friends is considered homeless. Homeless children may attend school in the district where the child was last enrolled or in the attendance area where the child is temporarily living. Proof of residency is waived if the parent/guardian signs an affidavit stating that the family is staying in temporary accommodations. Parents or guardians without school records for homeless children may request that the child be enrolled in school until the records arrive. In addition, parents or guardians may ask that immunization records be transferred over the phone from the sending school to the receiving school. Parents or guardians should contact the principal, counselor or local homeless liaison with any concerns.
