Homeless students are part of Title I, Part A’s target population of disadvantaged students; however, the high mobility, trauma, and poverty associated with homelessness create unique educational barriers and challenges that non-homeless Title I students may not face. Homelessness is associated with lower standardized test scores1 and a higher likelihood of missing school and/or experiencing multiple school transfers.2 Thus; homeless students often require additional supports for academic achievement and success on state assessments.
