Districts must provide transportation, at the request of the parent (or in the case of an unaccompanied youth, the local homeless education liaison), to and from the school of origin. If the homeless student continues to live in the school district in which the school of origin is located, the district must provide or arrange transportation. If the homeless student moves to another district, though continuing his or her education at the school of origin, the district of origin and the resident district must agree upon the method to provide and pay for transportation to the school of origin. If the two district cannot agree, the responsibility and costs must be shared equally.
