The Marshall County Homeless Plan for Children and Youth is based on the guidelines established by the Alabama State Department of Education. The plan is designed to ensure that all services are administered in compliance with the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act. A homeless survey is given to principals, counselors, and registrars each year to identify all homeless children. The homeless survey is available in Spanish and English so that the document can be completed in the language of the family. Children identified as homeless will be provided assistance with school supplies, medical needs, clothing, etc. based on need.
The enrollment of homeless children shall not be denied or delayed due to any of the following barriers:
- Lack of birth certificate
- Lack of school records or transcripts
- Lack of immunization of health records
- Lack of proof of residency
- Lack of transportation
- Guardianship or custody requirements
A temporary identification number can be obtained through the Central Office.
