The Kids In Transition (K.I.T.) Program's purpose is to support students' academic progression for those who are experiencing homelessness as defined by McKinney-Vento federal law.

Students that lack fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence may qualify for the KIT Program.  Housing situations may include the following:
  • Students who are sharing housing of other persons due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason;
  • Students who are living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, or camping grounds due to the lack of alternative adequate accommodations;
  • Students who are living in emergency or transitional shelters or where abandoned in hospitals.
  • Students that have a primary nighttime residence that is a public or private place not designed for or ordinarily used as a regular sleeping accommodations for human beings.
  • Students who are living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, bus or train stations or similar settings.
  • Migratory children who are living in circumstances described above.
  • Students who are not in the physical custody of a parent or guardian and living in one of the situations described above.
When school site personnel become aware that a student is facing housing challenges through the new student enrollment/registration process, attendance intervention meeting, school psychologist, transition team contact, residency investigation, community partners, or self-disclosure; the school site refers the student and their family to Student Services and School Attendance to meet with the Intervention Consultant.  Students, parents, and school sites should call (559) 327-9217 to make an appointment.

Eligible students may qualify for:
  • Help with enrollment in school and enrollment documents;
  • Maintaining enrollment in the same school despite residency changes;
  • Home/School transportation;
  • School supplies, school clothing, field trip costs, co-curricular costs, summer programs; 
  • Free school meals;
  • Medical and mental health referrals;
  • Transcript evaluation, partial credit recovery, and a waiver for some high school graduation requirements.  
  • Title One Services such as extra academic support
