• If a dispute arises over school selection or enrollment in a school, the child or youth should be immediately admitted to the school in which enrollment is sought pending resolution of the dispute. Students should be provided with all services for which they are eligible while disputes are resolved, consistent with the definition of “enrollment.” Enrollment is defined in the McKinney-Vento Act as “attending classes and participating fully in school activities”.

    The child, youth, parent, or guardian shall be referred to KISD Homeless Awareness & Response Program (HARP), which, after receiving notice of the dispute, shall carry out the dispute resolution process as expeditiously as possible.

    The parent or guardian of the child or youth shall be provided with a written explanation of the school’s decision regarding school selection or enrollment, including the right of the parent or the youth to appeal the decision.
