Policy No. 3115 Homeless Students
The Provo City School District desires the success of students who may lack a fixed, regular, or adequate residence or who are in another situation which places them in a temporary or emergency residence, such as economic hardship or the awaiting of foster care placement. In any such circumstance, the District seeks to provide service to these students which will enable them to continue their education with as little interruption as possible. To ensure the best interest of homeless students, procedures have been developed which will determine school placement for these students specific to their circumstances.
The Board directs the Superintendent or designee to develop procedures which will ensure that homeless students are given appropriate attention and are enabled to participate fully in school classes, services, and activities.
