Can my son attend the same school if I move out of the school district?

Q: For the past two years I have lived in Jefferson Hills, PA15025. I own a home in Clairton, PA 15025. How can the school district say my home is outside the district? How can I keep my son going to the same school? (Clairton, PA)

A: I would need to know more facts. I think it depends the reason you moved to Clairton, if you are saying you moved to Clairton. Are you saying you lived in Jefferson with your child and for some reason lost your housing there but have a prior address in Clairton? I am not sure if the McKinney Vento Act will apply to you. I suggest calling a child advocate at Kids Voice in Pittsburgh. 412-391-3100.
