• Homeless Student Rights


    Every homeless student has the right to...

     

    • Go to school no matter where they live or how long they've lived there.

    • Continue in the school they attended before becoming homeless or the school they last attended.

    • Receive transportation to the school they attended before becoming homeless or the school they last attended.

    • Attend school and participate in school programs with children who are not homeless.

    • Enroll in school without giving a permanent address.

    • Enroll and attend classes while the school arranges for the transfer of school and immunization records or any other documents required for enrollment.

    • Enroll and attend classes in the school of choice even while the school and parent/guardian seek to resolve a dispute over enrollment.

    • Participate in special programs and receive school services as needed.
