Homeless Student Resources

The term "homeless" is defined by the McKinney-Vento Act is an individual who lacks a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence. This can include children and youths who are sharing the housing of others due to a loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason,  who have a primary nighttime residence that is public or not designed as a regular sleeping accommodation for people, or who are living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings,  or substandard housing.

Homeless Student Transportation

Transportation for homeless students is available by filling out and turning in the Homeless Transportation Request Form.

It may take up to five days to establish a transportation route; however, once the Homeless Transportation Request Form is received, it will be processed immediately. The Transportation Department will contact you regarding pickup and drop-off times. Be aware that if the student is unable to make the prearranged pickup and/or drop off for bus service it is the parent's responsibility to contact the New Caney ISD Transportation Department at 281-577-8680 by 5:15 a.m. for morning pickup or 12:00 p.m. for afternoon drop-off.

If any part of the student's transportation is being provided by another school district, or ALC Solutions, it is the parent's responsibility to contact that school district or ALC Solutions to cancel service.

Three-no shows or missed runs will automatically result in the discontinuation of bus services. Your cooperation in this matter is deeply appreciated.
