Children in Transition participates in the Circle of Support to provide 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 Assistance Act shall have access to a free and appropriate public 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:

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

  • Live in a an emergency or transitional shelter or a domestic violence shelter

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

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 to the extent feasible

  • Participate in school related activities and receive other needed services
