The Principal's Message

Elverado High School is dedicated to providing challenging academic and social situations to foster lifelong learning among all of our students, which in turn creates responsible and productive citizens in society. I believe by providing students with structure, expectations, and mutual respect, we propel students to be the best they can be, both in the present and the future. Above all, I hope to be a champion for all students who walk through the doors of EHS.  

Mr. Dillman 


The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act ensures the educational rights and protections of homeless children and youth so that they may enroll in school, attend regularly, and be successful. This act guarantees McKinney-Vento eligible children and youth the following rights:

  • Immediate enrollment in school, even if lacking paperwork normally required for enrollment.

  • Attend school in his/her school of origin (If this is requested by the parent and is reasonable) or in the school in the attendance area where the family or youth is currently residing.

  • Services comparable to those received by housed schoolmates, including transportation and supplemental educational services.

  • Attend school along with children not experiencing homelessness.

Definition of Homelessness

The term “homeless children and youth”


  1. means individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence



children and youth who are sharing the housing of other persons due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason; are living in hotels, trailer parks, or camping grounds due to the lack of alternative adequate accommodations; are living in emergency or transitional shelters; are abandoned in hospitals

children and youth who have a primary nighttime residence that is a public or private place not designed for or ordinarily used as a regular sleeping accommodation for human beings

children and youth who are living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned building, substandard housing*, bus or train stations, or similar settings 

migratory children (as such term is defined in section 1309 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965) who qualify as homeless for the purposes of this subtitle because the children are living in circumstances described in clauses (i) through (iii).

*The US Department of Education has provided guidance on substandard housing: “In determining whether a child or youth is living in “substandard housing,” an LEA may consider whether the setting in which the family, child, or youth is living lacks one of the fundamental utilities such as water, electricity, or heat; is infested with vermin or mold; lacks a basic functional part, such as a working kitchen or a working toilet; or may present unreasonable dangers to adults, children, or persons with disabilities. Each city, county, or State may have its own housing codes that further define the kind of housing that may be deemed substandard.”
