Policy 5.1

Admission for Homeless, Migratory, Immigrant(5) and Limited English Proficient Students

Pursuant to the requirement of No Child Left Behind and the McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Act of 2001, all homeless, migratory, immigrant(5) , and limited English proficient children in the district will have access to the education and services needed to ensure that an opportunity is available to meet the same academic achievement standards to which all students are held. 

The enrollment of homeless, migrant, immigrant(5) , and limited English proficient children and youth shall not be denied or delayed due to any of the following barriers:
Lack of birth certificate
Lack of school records or transcripts
Lack of immunization of health records
Lack of proof of residency
Lack of transportation
Guardianship or custody requirements
The district will ensure that homeless, migratory, immigrant(5) , or limited English proficient students are not stigmatized nor segregated on the basis of their individual status. The student will be admitted to the district school in the attendance area in which the student is actually living or to the student’s school of origin as requested by the parent, guardian, or homeless liaison in the case of an unaccompanied youth, and in accordance with the student’s best interest. Transportation will be provided to and from the student’s school of origin at the request of the parent, guardian, or in the case of an unaccompanied student, the district’s liaison for homeless students. In the event circumstances are not in the best interest of the student to attend the school of origin based on a determination by the parent, guardian, or liaison, the student will attend the school in the attendance area of current residence.
