Welcome to the
To Identify a Homeless Student
Please review EOP regional assignment list before sending your referral:
"Homeless Education Network Contact list 2014.2015"
Our Referral FORM is the best way to send your student/family referral. ONE form PER STUDENT is required. EOP staff does our best to respond to requests quickly and will priortize referrals that are sent via 2014.2015 form. Once received by our office we will triage the forms in order of highest need.
School Staff: If siblings attend other DPS schools and the information is not available to complete a form then please note on referral form the siblings and their schools.
Please Complete the 2014-2015 Homeless Education Network Referral form
We will provide the confidential information to Food Services for free breakfast/lunch eligibilty. Students must participate in the full lunch menu items to receive free lunch. Ala Carte items are not part of free lunch services.
For Transportation requests please note: To qualify for transportation, the student must be currently homeless residing outside district walk zones (1 mile for elementary, 2.5 miles middle school, 3.5 miles high school) AND attending their school of origin. Homeless students that participated in DPS SchoolChoice cannot qualify for transportation. Students attending charter schools that enrolled while housed and are now homeless outside walk zone boundaries can qualify for transportation assistance. Keep in mind that transportation requests are completed in order received and it can take time to get determination by district transportation department. We appreciate your patience as we work on the request.
School staff please note-- Our program is not able to pay rent, eviction assistance or motel vouchers. We have many great community emergency resources available on our website resource packet section for families to call and learn about available funds and opportunities. We have a 2014.2015 Resource Guide to make it easier for families to find the resources they need more quickly. It is avilable in English and Spanish.
