Mission Statement

Children in Transition provides an educational environment that treats students with dignity and respect. Our program ensures that every student in our district who meets the criteria for homelessness according to the McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act shall have access to a free and appropriate education. This commitment to the educational rights of homeless children and youth applies to all the services, programs and activities provided or made available by Clayton County Public Schools.

Homeless children have the right to a free, appropriate public education.

If you or your child:

  • Live in a shelter

  • Share housing with relatives or others because you lost your housing or cannot afford housing

  • Live in a campground, car, abandoned building, or other inadequate shelter

  • Do not have a permanent address and/or permanent housing

  • Live on the street

  • Live in temporary foster care

You have the right to:

  • Immediately enroll in and attend school without having health and school records with you

  • Enroll in the school where you are living or the school attended when permanently housed
    ..if in your child's best interest

  • Receive transportation to and from school of origin

  • Participate in school related activities and receive other needed services

  • Utilize dispute resolution process if you have a grievance

Today's Thought

If I have been of service, if I have glimpsed more of the nature and essence of ultimate good, if I am inspired to reach wider horizons of thought and action, if I am at peace with myself, it has been a successful day.
