Education for Homeless Children Board Policies
The Student Support and Health Services and Legal departments are happy to announce ‘Education for Homeless Children’ policies. These policies comply with Federal and State Education Codes that require LEAs to ensure that all homeless children and youth have equal access to the same free, appropriate public education, including preschool education, as provided to other children and youths. The policies provide important protections and services for our most vulnerable students.
BP and AR 6173 will be uploaded through GAMUT. You can access the District’s board policies and administrative regulations at: https://www.scusd.edu/board-policies/.
To obtain more information regarding homeless student rights and services, including documents to help your staff identify and obtain services for homeless students and families (Referral forms, Resource Flyers, Declaration of Residence, etc), please see below.
