This guidance is intended to provide Homeless Education Liaisons, Foster Care Points of Contact, and district and school staff assigned the Homeless and Foster Care Student data collection role with information regarding the process.
Note: It is possible that a student was both homeless and placed in foster care during the school year. That student should be entered in both categories and will appear on both lists.
The Certify/Submit function is enabled when it is time to close out data entry for a school year; usually June through mid-July. This function allows districts to review and certify the accuracy of the data and finalize and submit it.
For questions on submitting homeless or foster care student data please contact Sarah Slautterback, Homeless Education State Coordinator at 781-338-6330 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
