Homelessness in California: Where Homeless Students Attend School
Homelessness disproportionately impacts children, therefore data about student homelessness is of critical importance to improving educational outcomes.
In California, close to a quarter of a million students are homeless. ICPH created this interactive map of student homelessness to provide information critical to improving California’s programs and policies. The data for this map comes from the U.S. Department of Education and is for the 2014–15 school year, which is the most recent complete set of data we have available for analysis. We will periodically update the map with new years as they become available.
All of the information in the map has been carefully checked to ensure that the privacy rights of students are protected and that the data is in adherence with FERPA.
We value your feedback. For comments, questions or more information please contact: email@example.com.
This interactive map focuses on homeless families in NYC who have children currently enrolled in the pubic school system. The map allows readers to visualize the amount of students in every public school in the city who do not have a stable residency.
A quality education can be the most important tool to helping children and families lift themselves out of a recurring pattern of housing instability. To do that, however, these children must first be identified as homeless and then receive the necessary support to ensure that homelessness does not disrupt their learning.
