Mission

Waco ISD’s history of serving students in transition was recently recognized by the Federal Government as we proudly accepted the TEXSHEP grant. This grants allows local educational agencies to implement educational and support services for children and youth in homeless situations. We are entrusted with the task of helping our students who are experiencing homelessness. This help is offered in a variety of ways. We hope that this website will help you to understand the services we offer in accordance with the McKinney-Vento Act and the State of Texas. We also hope that you will share this information with others you know so that together we can build a strong foundation for our students.

Considering Services

In order to assure that students in homeless situations have the opportunity to enroll in, attend, and succeed in school; the following services may be explored:

  • Enrollment Assistance
  • Free School Meals
  • Transportation Services
  • School Selection Provisions
  • Access to Special Education

Enroll your child in school.

You can enroll your child even if you are missing immunization records, school records, and proof of residency.

Keep copies of critical records:

  • Immunizations
  • Social Security number
  • health physicals
  • individualized education programs (IEPs)

Ask questions

  • Is transportation available for my child to stay in the same school?
  • Will someone help us transfer records quickly when we move?
  • Is there a pre-school program?
  • Should my child be tested for special education?
  • Can my child receive free meals at school?
  • Are school supplies available?
  • Are there after-school study halls or tutoring available?
  • Are special counseling services available for my child?
