Foster Youth Services and Homeless Education
The goal of the PUSD Foster and Homeless Youth Education Program is to provide students with support services such as educational planning, personal mentoring, academic goal setting, and community networking. Our program works in collaboration with school personnel and community service agencies to maximize access to various educational, social, and enrichment programs that promote academic success and student achievement. Our mission is to support foster and homeless youth pursue their educational endeavors!
- Immediate enrollment in the school they last attended (school of origin) or the local school where you are currently staying, even if you do not have all the documents normally required at the time of enrollment.
- Continue to attend their school of origin, if requested by you and it is in the best interest.
- Receive transportation to and from their school of origin, the same special programs, and services, if needed, as provided to all other children, including free meals and Title I.
- Receive the full protections and services provided under all federal and state laws, as it relates to homeless children, youth, and their families.
