MV Brocure Hands up

Students-In-Transition Program

  • There are a number of circumstances that can cause a family to become homeless, often times leading to a number of transitions for students.  Don’t let your child miss school because of a circumstance where we might be able to help.  Children who have extensive absences from school have higher drop-out rates, have a harder time catching up academically and are more likely to be retained.  Our goal is to make sure that all students regardless of their living situation has the opportunity to receive a quality education.

    Although it may be difficult, you will be asked to share your living situation with Ferguson-Florissant School District (FFSD) staff so we can determine if you are eligible for services under the McKinney-Vento Act.
