• Continue to attend their school of origin, if requested by you and it is in the best interest.

• Receive transportation to and from their school of origin, the same special programs and services, if needed, as provided to all other children, including free meals and Title I.

• Receive the full protections and services provided under all federal and state laws, as it relates to homeless children, youth, and their families.
