The purpose of the proposed revisions to Board Policy 5111.01 Homeless Students is to ensure compliance with all applicable federal and state laws, Florida State Board of Education Rules, Board policies, administrative rules, procedures, and guidelines. In addition, the proposed revisions promote transparency and accountability.

This policy is being revised to clarify the procedures regarding the McKinney-Vento Act, and other changes in compliance with applicable Florida and federal law.  Particular areas of revision include the following: identification of homeless children, coordination of district programs and reducing barriers for homeless children to receive education, and to coordinate with state requirements for district policy. These proposed revisions encompass in part the suggested language from NEOLA. Language has been added to ensure compliance with the state’s McKinney-Vento Act Homeless Students Policy Requirements Checklist.
