Students in Temporary Housing Program (STHP) (CoSer 556)
The Students in Temporary Housing Program aims to improve the identification, enrollment, attendance, academic achievement, and self-confidence of students living in temporary housing and shelters. STHP provides technical assistance to school districts and community agencies regarding the McKinney-Vento regulations for families who qualify at any point during the school year. The program hosts regional meetings and workshops for district liaisons, school administrators, teachers, shelter staff, parents, and community agencies. Additionally, the Students in Temporary Housing Program seeks out and leads participation in state and federal grant opportunities in collaboration with local school districts. The program supports students’ academic achievement by offering hybrid after-school programs at shelters and local community-based organizations (CBOs).
