• Access to Comparable Services

    Homeless Students are to be provided services and education programs comparable to those received by other students and for which they meet eligibility criteria, such as services provided under Title I or similar state or local programs: programs for students with disabilities; programs for students with limited English proficiency; gifted and talented programs; and school nutrition programs. 

    To expedite the delivery of nutritional benefits, school officials may accept documentation that students are  homeless from the local educational liaison or the director of  the homeless shelter where the student resides as the determination of eligibility for free lunch.
