Enrollment Rights and Services

Displaced/Living in a Temporary Situation  – Students

Students and their families who find themselves in transition may be eligible for additional services through our district. To the extent practical and as required by law, the district will work with displaced youth and their families to provide stability in school attendance and other services. Displaced youth will be provided district services for which they are eligible, including APPLE (ECEAP), Title I, LAP, special education, bilingual education, career and technical education programs, gifted and talented programs and school nutrition programs.

Displaced youth are those students who are in transition. They include:

  • Sharing the housing of other persons due to loss of housing or economic hardship or similar reasons;
  • Living in motels, hotels, trailer parks or camping grounds due to the lack of alternative adequate accommodations;
  • Living in emergency or transitional shelters;
  • Are abandoned in hospitals;
  • Living in public or private places not designed for, or ordinarily used, as regular sleeping accommodations for human beings;
  • Living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, transportation stations or similar settings; or
  • Migratory children living in conditions described above.
  • Inadequate facilities
