Students Experiencing Homelessness

Last Updated: 4/11/2023 3:10 PM



Parents, Guardians, and Community Members:

Freeport Area School District guarantees all children and youth experiencing homelessness a free and appropriate public education.  Homeless children and youth include those living with or without their parents in a shelter (temporary family shelter, domestic violence shelter, runaway shelter, transitional housing, hotel or motel, campground, car or on the street).  Also included are those children and youth temporarily living with relatives or friends (with or without their parents) because they do not have a fixed, regular, safe, or adequate place of residence.

More information is provided in Freeport Area School District's Resource and Information Packet for students experiencing homelessness. 


If you have any questions about homelessness or would like to identify a potential student experiencing homelessness, please contact me.
