The SCS Homeless Education Program is designed to facilitate the enrollment, attendance and success of children and youth experiencing Homelessness. Specifically, this program ensures immediate enrollment for students in grades Pre-K-12 who are experiencing homelessness and collaborates with schools, parents, caregivers and community agencies to ensure students have transportation to and from school, school supplies and materials, uniforms, and other supports that eliminate barriers to learning and access to public education. McKinney-Vento Subgrant and Title I, Part A, funds are provided to assist the district in meeting the needs of children and youth participating in the SCS Homeless Education Program.
SCS collaborates with the Department of Children’s Services to ensure students placed in foster care have access to education services and supports. Specifically, students in foster care have the right to participate in all school and extracurricular programs and to remain at their schools of origin upon charges to their foster placements.
