Trend is not positive for the homeless children and youth in the Cleveland Metro Schools. Remember that the Cleveland Schools follow the most logical broadest definition of homelessness which is different than the limited definition that HUD uses for homelessness. Even after the downturn, the number of homeless kids continue to increase in Cleveland. There are almost 4 times as many homeless kids as there were in 2000 in Cleveland.
These stats come from the Cleveland Metropolitan School District Project Act--August 2014. A school year is defined as July 1 through June 30 of the next year. For more information 216-592-7405.
