Transportation is available for all FIT students that qualify by utilizing school buses and cabs to insure timely and daily attendance. In order to meet the demands of transportation, several procedures are in place.
If the homeless student’s school of origin and temporary housing are located in two different school districts, the districts may agree on a method to apportion the responsibility and costs for providing transportation to the school of origin. If no agreement is reached, the districts will equally share the responsibility and costs for transporting the student. If a homeless student becomes permanently housed in the middle of the school year, the district will continue to provide transportation to the school of origin for the remainder of the school year.
Transportation to the school of origin shall be provided, even if a homeless preschooler who is enrolled in a public preschool moves to another district that does not provide a widely available or universal preschool.
