Homeless students and foster youth have the right to immediate enrollment when changing schools, even if they are missing documents normally required for enrollment. The school will work with the parents to obtain the missing documents. Enrollment means the ability to attend classes and participate in school activities.
Sweetwater Union High School District’s Foster & Homeless Youth Education Services Program provides students in foster care with assistance related to:
- School placement, enrollment, and transfer
- School meals
- School transportation
- Educational services
- Mental health services
- Case consultation and management
- Dispute resolution process
For more information, please contact Molly Ravenscroft, Family Community Services Program Coordinator, at 619-407-4969 or Molly.Ravenscroft@sweetwaterschools.org.
