Education of Foster Youth
Homeless Youth Education
The law requires the immediate enrollment of homeless students, which is defined as “attending class and participating fully in school activities." Schools cannot delay or prevent the enrollment of a student due to the lack of school or immunization records. It is the responsibility of the district homeless liaison to refer parents to all programs and services for which the student is eligible. Referrals may include, but is not limited to: free nutrition, special education services, tutoring, English Language Learners programs, Gifted and Talented Education program, preschool, before and after school services or any other program offered by the school or district. The district shall ensure that transportation is provided, at the request of the parent/guardian/unaccompanied homeless youth, to and from the school of origin, if feasible.
Unaccompanied youth, such as teen parents not living with their parent or guardian or students that have runaway or have been pushed out of their homes, have access to these same rights.
A homeless student that transfers schools after the second year of high school and is greatly deficient in credits may be able to graduate within four years with reduced state requirements. School districts are required to issue and accept partial credit for courses that have been satisfactorily completed.

TITLE IX GENDER EQUALITY
It is the policy of the State of California that all persons, regardless of their gender, should enjoy freedom from discrimination of any kind in the educational institution of the state. The laws found in the California Education Code 221.5-231.5 are collectively known as the Sex Equity in Education Act. These laws expand upon gender equity and Title IX laws which provide guidance to California’s education system. Temecula International Academy upholds all aspects of Title IX and CDE policies.
Students or parents/guardians should report their verbal or written Title IX complaint to the school administrator or Title IX Coordinator within six months from the date the incident occurred. This will begin the informal investigation process which must be completed within 60 days. Complainants have a right to a timely and informal resolution at the school site.
If the complainant is dissatisfied with the school decision, an appeal of the findings may be made to the California Department of Education - Office of Equal Opportunity.
