Chicago Public Schools – Students in Temporary Living Situations (STLS)

For students who do not live in permanent housing, attending school and staying on track for their grade can present challenges on many levels and across different areas.

Chicago Public Schools and networks provide assistance in removing these barriers to qualified Students in Temporary Living Situations (STLS), including providing transportation, school uniforms, school supplies, fee waivers and referrals to community resources.

To find out if your student and family are eligible for STLS services, contact the STLS Liaison at your school. Every CPS school, including charter schools and options schools, has an STLS Liaison. For other questions about the STLS Program, please call (773) 553-2242 or email
