Need help with your child's math homework?  Below is a link to a YouTube video that will show you how to install and use an app called Bounce Pages.  It is directly linked to the enVision math program.

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Act guarantees a free and appropriate public education for all homeless children and youth.  Federal and state laws make the school district’s responsibility clear.

  • A student whose family becomes homeless may remain in the school he/she was attending prior to becoming homeless for the duration of the school year.

  • If it is feasible, a student may transfer to a school if it is closer to his/her transitional housing.

  • The receiving school may not prevent or delay the enrollment of a homeless child by requiring proof of residency or lack of documentation such as immunization records.  

  • Transportation for homeless must begin within 5 school days, but sooner if possible.
