Myra Berkovits , a teacher on special assignment for the Title I Homeless Education Program , told school board trustees earlier this month that homeless students often couch serf from home to home to mask identifiers--living in a shelter , having multiple addresses in a year and wearing the same clothes.Berkovits said the problem is worse among image-conscious high schoolers , only 64 of whom were identified as homeless last year compared with 1 , 184 elementary pupils and 353 middle school pupils.Once the students are identified , the focus switches to facilitating school enrollment and accessing support programs such as Operation School Bell , which gives students school supplies and clothing.Available through the federal Title I program are free breakfast and lunch through the eighth grade , parenting classes and transportation to appointments.
