Homeless Children and Youth

Public Notice

The Stanton School Board shall make reasonable efforts to identify homeless children and youth of school age within the district, encourage their enrollment and eliminate existing barriers to their receiving education which may exist in district policies or practices.

A homeless child is defined as a child or youth between the ages of 5 and 21 who lacks a fixed regular and adequate nighttime residence and includes a child or youth who is living  on the street, in a car, tent, or abandoned building or some other form of shelter not designed as a permanent home; who is living in a community shelter facility; or who is living with non-nuclear family members or with friends, who may or may not have legal guardianship over the child or youth of school age.

Guidance Counselor Sheila Mainquist may be contacted at 712-829-2162 to be made aware of any homeless children or youth.
