Funding for States and School Districts

Total Idaho Homeless Student Enrollment and % Change
*As measured by student performance on the Idaho Student Achievement Test (ISAT); Does not include all districts
*Although the term “homeless students” is used, it is understood that homelessness is a temporary experience of residential loss or instability, and that the term “homeless” is not a permanent or definitional label. The term “homeless students” more accurately refers to “children and youth experiencing homelessness.”
