Financial Resources for Families

Homeless Student Assistance

Midland Public Schools can assist parents and families while they are temporarily between homes.

A student is considered to be homeless if, due to a lack of housing, they must reside in a shelter, motel, vehicle, campground, on the street, in abandoned buildings, or doubled-up with relatives or friends due to economic hardship or eviction. A student can become homeless due to a fire or other natural disaster resulting in a temporary or permanent loss of their home.

Free and Reduced Lunches

For every district that chooses to participate, students in pre-kindergarten through Grade 12 will receive one breakfast and one lunch per student, free of charge. The Michigan Department of Education (MDE) encourages all eligible districts to participate and is preparing to support districts with program implementation.

Although families won’t have to pay for meals, they must complete forms at their local school to determine eligibility for other educational programs. MDE encourages parents/guardians to watch for those forms in their school enrollment packets and back-to-school information later this summer. Completed forms help districts with accessing additional health and wellness services, before- and after-school academic and enrichment programs, and guidance and college counselors, as well as fee waivers for various tests and applications.
