Pittsfield Schools Subcommittee OKs Policies on Education Stability

By Brittany PolitoiBerkshires Staff

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Pittsfield Public School's Policy Subcommittee adopted three policies to make sure that homeless, foster, and connected military students have education stability.  

The policies are to ensure that these students are receiving proficient education and that they are immediately enrolled upon entering the district.

Director of Curriculum Judy Rush's examination of the current policy resulted in her offering a revised homeless student policy and two new policies to the subcommittee.

Last week, the subcommittee voted unanimously in favor of each policy's approval on first reading.

The Homeless Students policy is a revised policy that has been driven by the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act that ensures homeless children and youth have equal access to the same free and appropriate public education, including public preschool education, as provided to other children and youths.
