Audit Shows California Fails To Adequately Identify, Support Homeless Students

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — An audit released by the California State Auditor on Thursday showed that the California Department of Education and local education agencies (LEAs) fail to identify and support students experiencing homelessness.

The audit was requested in March by Assemblymembers David Chiu (D-San Francisco), James Ramos (D-Highland), and Luz Rivas (D-Arleta) and found that LEAs do not accurately identify homeless students or provide them with the proper services.
