Displaced Students/Families

The purpose of the McKinney-Vento Act is to provide educational services to homeless students which are equal to all other enrolled students, and ensure that homeless children and youth have equal opportunities to enroll in, attend, and be successful in school. Your child may qualify as homeless if you are:

  • sharing housing with others due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or similar reason.
  • living in a motel, hotel, trailer park or camping grounds due to lack of adequate living accommodations
  • guardian for a child in temporary, emergency foster care

Tobacco, Alcohol, and Drug Free Schools

Under the Drug Free Schools and Communities Act, all Stanwood-Camano Schools must be totally free of unlawful drugs and alcohol. No one is allowed to posess, use or distribute such drugs or alcohol while at school or while taking part in school activities. In addition, State Law and Board Policy prohibit the use of tobacco products or electronic cigarettes (vaping) by anyone on public school property. Disciplinary actions will be taken for drug, alcohol, vaping and tobacco violations. The law allows for discipline that may include prosecution for illegal acts, as well as suspension or expulsion for students. The District fully supports the Drug-Free School and Communities Act. It is expected that all students and employees will follow the regulations and policies prohibiting possession, use or distribution of drugs, alcohol, and tobacco on school property or as a part of any school activity. Services are available within this area for students who are involved with drugs or abusing alcohol. Resources can be found by contacting school staff or your family doctor.

Use of computers and technology

The Stanwood-Camano School District provides all students with access to networked services as well as to the Internet and some forms of electronic communication. Having access allows students to use online resources purchased by the district to support student learning and free internet sites. Access to the School District’s computer network is a privilege that comes with responsibilities for its appropriate use. It is important that users understand both the benefits of using the computer and the potential risks.

The School District makes a concerted effort to prevent student access to objectionable material on the Internet. District computers use Internet filtering software that is continually updated and teachers supervise computer use to assure that students are accessing information that is educationally relevant. If you have questions about your child’s use of the Internet while at school, please contact your child’s school. If you believe that your child should not have access to the Internet while at school, please notify your child’s school.


State law requires that all juveniles between 8 years old to 18 years old attend school. (A child who is 6 or 7 years old also must attend school on a regular basis if they have been enrolled in school.) The parent must notify the school as soon as possible when their child will be absent from school. Within two days of returning to class, the student must bring a note signed by the parent or guardian explaining the reason for the absence.

Approval depends on space and/or services available in the school or specific program.
