Dear Parent, Guardian or Youth,

This resource packet includes information that will be helpful to you and your family. This packet is being sent to you based on the information that you provided on the Student Residency Questionnaire/Domicile form.

The packet includes our pamphlet outlining some information about our program and rights that you may exercise under the McKinney Vento Act should you or your child qualify for the Students In Transition Program. Please do not hesitate to call our program if you have any questions or are in need of further information about our program and the rights that you and your child may have.

We wish you the very best and look forward to speaking with you if we may be of further assistance to you and your family.

Sincerely,

Students In Transition Staff

Every child has a right to free and appropriate public education.

STUDENTS IN TRANSITION

S.I.T.

Department of Student Services

 

If you lost your housing and now live in a shelter, motel, vehicle, camping ground, or temporary trailer; on the street; doubled-up with family or friends; or in another type of temporary or inadequate housing, your child might be able to receive help through a federal law called the McKinney-Vento Act.

 

Under the McKinney-Vento Act, children in homeless situations have the right to:

  • Go to school, no matter where they live or how long they have lived there.
  • Attend either the local school or the school of origin, if this is in their best interest; the school of origin is the school the child attended when he/she was permanently housed or the school in which the child was last enrolled.
  • Receive transportation to and from the school of origin.
  • Enroll in school immediately, even if missing records and documents normally required for enrollment, such as birth certificate, proof of residence, previous school records, or immunization/medical records.
  • Enroll, attend classes, and participate fully in all school activities while the school gathers records.
  • Have access to the same programs and services that are available to all other students, including transportation and supplemental educational services.

*   Attend school with children not experiencing homelessness; a school cannot segregate a student because he or she

is homeless.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Whom can I contact for help with my child’s education?

Every school district has a local liaison. The Students In Transition (SIT) program is available to assist you and your child.

 

How will the Students In Transition (SIT) Program help my child?

SIT will ensure you have been advised of your child’s rights, will assist you in determining which school is best for your child, will set up free lunch for your child, will assist you with securing school supplies for your child if needed, will facilitate the transportation of your child to and from their school of origin, and will provide you with referrals to agencies within the community that may be able to help you and your family.

 

Should I keep my child in their school of origin or should I move them to the local school?

Consider the following: How old is your child? How much time would your child spend commuting to and from their school of origin? How long do you expect to be in this living arrangement? Do you expect to stay in this area? How attached is your child to their school? Would changing schools be upsetting to your child? Are there safety issues to consider?

 

What can I do to help my child in school?

Make sure your child goes to school everyday and gets plenty of rest; provide a quiet place for your child to do homework; pay attention to your child’s health and take care of problems early on; read to your child everyday, for older children, have them read to you; listen to what your child shares with you and talk about any problems he or she is having; encourage your child to participate in class and school activities.

RESOURCES AND REFERRAL GUIDE

In order to receive assistance some of the agencies below require a photo ID, proof of residency and/or social security cards for each person in the household. If needed request a written referral from SIT staff.

Budget Help

Many folks have difficulty finding ways to make ends meet. Here are some suggestions to get control of your money:

  • Living within your means. If there is more going out than coming in there needs to be some decisions and changes in spending. This is crucial to resolving money problems. Plan out expenses you know you have regularly and make a plan to cover these expenses. If you have more output than input consider what can be eliminated.
  • Have an emergency fund. Stuff happens! Even if it is just a few dollars, sock it away for those times when life happens as it invariably will.
  • Eliminate living on credit. Folks who use credit to cover the cost for their basic need items like food and shelter or to reward themselves with “fun” toys will often find themselves in a deep hole of debt that can be difficult to climb out of. If you want something instead of reaching for the plastic get an envelope and put a dollar inside. Add to that dollar whenever you can. You will probably enjoy that item much more once you get it!

Complete the budget on the following page. Spend some time thinking about what you learn from this. Talk to your partner if you have one

Florida Statute 119.071 (5) and Title 42 Code of Federal Regulations, Section 435.910, require any agency that collects Social Security numbers to provide a written explanation to the individual of the reason for its collection.

 

 

Why is Pasco County Public Transportation collecting your Social Security number?

Pasco County Public Transportation is collecting your Social Security number as part of its responsibility to determine transportation eligibility. We do this to assess transportation services that are funded by the state or federal government for which you may qualify.

 

The provision of your Social Security number is voluntary, and your information will remain confidential and protected under penalty of law. We will not use or give out your Social Security number for any other reason, including referrals to other agencies, unless you have signed a separate form consenting to the release of information to another agency.

 

Your signature below is required to acknowledge you have been given this notice and understand the reason why Pasco County Public Transportation collects your Social Security number.
