Clarkston School District Children In Transition Program
In the 2011-2012 school year,200 students were recognized as homeless in the Clarkston School District.
The Children In Transition program was created to collaborate with teachers and schools to help homeless students continue to be successful in school. A homeless liaison has been appointed to advocate for these students. Some of the ways the liaison can help are:
Provide advocacy and resources to the family and student for basic needs
Provide training on how to recognize the signs and symptoms of homelessness
Provide teaching strategies to be inclusive of these students
If you know a student who lacks permanent night time shelter, please contact a Building Coordinator (each school has their own, see below).
