Housing Questionnaire for Head Start Programs
This Housing Questionnaire should be used by Head Start staff as a part of the enrollment process to identify any child who is homeless.
FORMS & TEMPLATES
Pre-K classrooms have a maximum size at twenty children, but can be expanded. The New York State Education Department (NYSED) will grant a class-size variance to allow a 21st child in the classroom if that child is in temporary housing. To get a variance, the Pre-K program should complete this Pre-K Class Size Variance Request.
