Moscow School District recognizes the right of all students residing within the District’s boundaries, including those who are homeless, to enroll in school and participate in the District’s educational and support programs.

  1. Each child of a homeless individual and each homeless child has equal access to the same free, appropriate public education, including a public preschool education, as provided to other students;
  2. Homelessness does not in any way separate homeless students from the mainstream school environment; and
  3. Homeless children and youths have access to the education and other services that such children and youths need to ensure that such children and youths have an opportunity to meet the same challenging state academic standards to which all students are held.

The Board of Trustees directs all District schools to admit children who are homeless regardless of residence and irrespective of whether the homeless child is able to produce records normally required for enrollment. 

All schools and employees of the District shall work to ensure that children and youth who are homeless are free from discrimination, segregation, and harassment.  The District will also strive to prevent stigma against students who are homeless.
