Homeless Transportation

At the request of the parent or guardian (or in the case of an unaccompanied youth, the Homeless Transportation liaison), transportation will be provided for a homeless student to and from the school of origin as follows:

  • if the homeless child or youth continues to live in the area served by the division in which the school of origin is located, the child’s or youth’s transportation to and from the school of origin shall be provided or arranged by the division in which the school of origin is located.
  • if the homeless child’s or youth’s living arrangements in the area served by the division in which the school of origin is located terminate and the child or youth, though continuing his or her education in the school of origin, begins living in an area served by another division, the division of origin and the division in which the homeless child or youth is living shall agree upon a method to apportion the responsibility and costs for providing the child with transportation to and from the school of origin. If the divisions are unable to agree upon such method, the responsibility and costs for transportation shall be shared equally.
