Homeless Enrolled Students by State
|Applicable School Years||Applicable States||File Spec||Data Group||State Note|
Does not include data on students who were identified as homeless but declined assistance from the schools.
Totals will not equal the same amount because they may include duplicate students. The Arizona student information system collects an "unknown" primary nighttime residence, of which 332 were reported in this reporting period. Additionally, 124 students were reported as having more than one grade during this reporting period. Arizona has also experienced 368 students who have more than one primary nighttime residence, this will be corrected in future reporting.
While slated to collect Unaccompanied Homeless Youth enrolled data in SY 13-14, with the California Department of Education's (CDE) adoption of the Local Control Funding Formula and SMARTER Balanced Assessments, the CDE is unable to implement this proposed change to the data collection. It is anticipated this collection will be revised to collect unaccompanied homeless youth data for the SY 2014-15. For SY 12-13, the CDE has contacted those LEAs that are McKinney-Vento subgrantees to collect the total number of Unaccompanied Homeless Youth enrolled, with a 68% response rate. These subgrantees reported 3,480 total homeless children/youth enrolled in LEAs with subgrants. For SY 13-14, CDE will attempt to collect Unaccompanied Youth Enrolled counts for LEAS with subgrants.
Prior to the 2011-12 school year reporting period, the data were aggregated by counting each homeless student one time only. Beginning in 2011-12 and including the current 2012-13 school year reporting period, the data in this section were aggregated by counting each homeless student one time for EACH agency in which the student was enrolled during the given school year.
North Dakota has missing data for Homeless Children/Youth Enrolled primary nighttime residences due to the following: (1) Data from LEA’s using a local system not transferring to the ND online reporting system (2) Data disappearing after being entered (3) LEA’s not checking data We are currently working with our reporting system to incorporate more validation requirements to resolve these issues.
