Long Island homeless students on the rise

The recession, a lack of affordable housing, and displacement after Superstorm Sandy have led to substantial increases in the number of Long Island students listed as homeless. Here are figures for school districts and five charter schools showing the rise during the 2008-2009 through 2012-2013 school years, both as an actual number and as a percentage of total enrollment.


On the map, the 2013 display is for the 2012-2013 school year. You can go back as far as the 2007-2008 school year (labeled 2008).


Beginning with the 2009-2010 school year, the figures were suppressed (Sup.) for any district with four or fewer homeless students. Figures were not available for charter schools before that year. The figures are based on records from the New York State Education Department.
