As stated in Chancellor’s Regulation A-101, students in temporary housing may not be refused enrollment in a school because of lack of documentation required for registration, including proof of residency.

Next steps if a family in temporary housing lacks documentation: School must provisionally register the student and work with the DOE Students in Temporary Housing liaison to obtain the missing documentation.
