If you or your family is experiencing homelessness or insecurity about where you are sleeping at night - there is help and you do have rights as a student experiencing homelessness.

School Board Policy on Homeless Students Rights
Are you uncertain if you are experiencing homelessness
There is a difference between fixed homelessness and temporary homelessness.

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction maintains much information about the federal laws protecting the rights of homeless students, as well as having an FAQ about common situations and questions that come up concerning homelessness. 

Homeless children and unaccompanied homeless youth must have equal access to the same free, appropriate public education, including a public preschool education, and other services as provided to other children and youths to ensure that homeless children and youth have an opportunity to meet the same challenging State academic standards to which all students are held.

Complaints and disputes must follow the normal resolution process through the School District Administration/District Office. If that is unsatisfactory, however, complaints can then be directed to the State Department of Public Instruction, State Superintendent.
