Homeless/Transitional Services
Children and youth experiencing homelessness (including those living with extended family or friends, in shelter, hotels, etc.) face many challenging issues on a daily basis. To alleviate any educational barriers such as school enrollment, attendance, or academic achievement, the School District of Superior is committed to the implementation of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act.

Partnering with community agencies, the School District develops, reviews, and revises policies that impact the educational services for homeless students.

Since 2010, the School District has worked with National Bank of Commerce, United Way, and Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank to distribute NOW, Nutrition on Weekends food backpacks to students with identified need.

Education for Homeless Children and Youth (EHCY)

Homeless children and unaccompanied youth must have access to public school educational programs and services that allow them to meet the same challenging state academic standards to which all students are held.

Program Elements

  • Designate a homeless liaison in each school district.
  • Identify and immediately enroll any homeless child or youth (preschool to grade 12), even without academic or medical records.
  • Continue children or youths in their "school of origin" for the duration of their homelessness.
  • Inform parents/guardians of the educational rights of their children.
  • Provide transportation, at the request of the parent, to the school of origin.
  • Ensure no barriers exist (for example, residency requirements, lack of transportation or school fees) for full educational participation.
  • Develop partnerships with community agencies to identify and assist with basic services for homeless families, children, and youth.
  • Ensure homeless students are not segregated or stigmatized.
