    The family information tab in the Data Confirmation process collects information on family members that serve in the United States Armed Forces and the family's residential information. 

    Armed Forces Question

    Under the accountability requirements of Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), the US Department of Education requires all school districts to identify students who are armed forces family members. If at least one parent/guardian of your student is active in the United States Armed Forces, then select: 

    Yes to the Military Question

    If none of the parent/guardians of the student are active in the United States Armed Forces, then select:

    No to the Military Question

    Residential Survey

    The residential survey helps districts determine what services you and/or your child may be eligible to receive. This could include additional educational services through Title I, Part A and/or the federal McKinney-Vento Assistance Act. The information provided in this survey will be kept confidential and only shared with the appropriate school district and site staff. 

    Your child or children may have the right to:

    • Immediate enrollment in the school they last attended (school of origin) or the local school where you are currently staying, even if you do not have all the documents normally required at the time of enrollment. 
    • Continue to attend their school of origin, if requested by you and it is in the best interest.
    • Receive transportation to and from their school of origin, the same special programs and services, if needed, as provided to all other children, including free meals and Title I.
    • Receive the full protections and services provided under all federal and state laws, as it relates to homeless children, youth, and their families. 

    The following options will display:

    Homeless Options

    Choose the option that best represents your family's living situation. If none of the above home situations apply to your student and family, select the following option:

    None of the Above Family Living Situation Option
