Conneaut SCHOOL DISTRICT SUPPORT FOR

YOUTH EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS

 

The Conneaut School District has developed procedures and policies to support students who may be experiencing homelessness as defined by the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act of 2001.  Students may qualify as homeless as they lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence. The Homeless Children’s Initiative helps homeless children and youth access Pennsylvania’s Public schools by removing barriers to a free and appropriate public education and continue as uninterrupted as possible while he or she is homeless.

 

WHO IS HOMELESS?

 

Some reasons that students may qualify as a homeless youth include:

  • Sharing housing with others due to loss of housing due to economic hardship.
  • Living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, or camping grounds due to a lack of adequate alternative accommodations.
  • Living in emergency or transitional shelters.
  • Abandoned in hospitals or awaiting foster care.
  • Outside of his or her home as a runaway or because he/she has been forced out of the home.
  • In a house for unwed mothers with no other options for living accommodations.
  • Children and youth who have a primary nighttime residence that is a public or private place not designated for regular sleeping accommodations.
  • Children and youths living in cars, public spaces, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, bus or train stations or similar settings.

 

 

 

Students who are determined to be homeless, due to a lack of a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence are entitled to:

 

  • Attend the school of origin or school of current residence.
  • Remain in chosen school for remainder of year once they are permanently housed.
  • Immediate enrollment.
  • Transportation.
  • Immediate access to educational services for which they are eligible.
  • Free meals provided by the district through federal, state, or local food programs.
  • Attend the school of choice during enrollment disputes.
  • Appeal placement decisions made by the District.

 

If you or someone you know may qualify as a homeless youth, please see your school’s guidance counselor or call the Conneaut School District Homeless Liaison:
