Homeless Students

The definition of homeless students are defined in Maine Title 20-A, Part 1, Chapter 1,  Definitions, 13-A.

Actually enrolling the student depends on who is actually paying for the student.

Example: Student meets the definition of homeless above, lives in District A but attends school in District B

If District B is paying for the student then either Option 1 or Option 2 may be used. If District A is paying then use Option 3

Option 1: 
District B enrolls Primary 
Resident Town = town within District B 
Fiscal Responsibility = Resident of School Unit

Option 2: 
District B enrolls Primary 
Resident Town = town within District A 
Fiscal Responsibility = Superintendent Agreement

Option 3: 
District B enrolls Primary 
Resident Town = town within District A 
Fiscal Responsibility = Paid by Resident SAU
