Homeless Education Services 

Panorama Schools provides services to students, regardless of their living situation, so they are prepared to come to school and learn every day. It is a priority of Panorama Schools that a homeless student’s education is not interrupted.

The Panorama Schools works with families to overcome barriers that may prevent a student from coming to school every day, ready to learn. The school district follows the McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Act. Homeless students, or students in transition, are given access to the same public education that is provided to other children.

If you or your child:

  • Live in a shelter

  • Share housing with relatives or others because you lost your housing or cannot afford housing

  • Live in a campground, car, abandoned building, or other inadequate shelter

  • Do not have a permanent address and/or permanent housing

  • Live on the street

  • Live in temporary foster care

  • Are an unaccompanied youth

You have the right to:

  • Immediately enroll in and attend school without having health and school records with you

  • Enroll in school where you are living or the school attended when permanently housed…if it is in your child’s best interest

  • Receive transportation to and from school of origin

  • Participate in school-related activities and receive other needed services

  • Utilize a dispute resolution process if you have a grievance
