Under the Act, schools are prohibited from delaying a homeless child’s entry into school due to delays in obtaining school records.

Homeless Determination Dispute Policy

Disputes may arise between a school and a homeless student, parent, or guardian regarding, among other things, enrollment or transportation eligibility.  The dispute resolution process begins at the time a school challenges the right of a parent, guardian, or unaccompanied youth to enroll a child or youth in school, to continue enrollment in school, or to receive services such as transportation assistance.  This process is applicable when the parent, guardian or unaccompanied youth is attempting to enroll the child or youth in the in-boundary school or the school of origin and there is disagreement as to whether the school is the in-boundary school or the school of origin.
