For example, parents alerted the staff to safety concerns in the parking lot and on surrounding streets.

Much is known about the far-reaching influences of poverty on a student's learning. An understanding of these factors provides invaluable knowledge to educators in their efforts to support and teach students who live in poverty. Like HP/HP schools, every school that enrolls such children must seek to acquire as much understanding as possible about the life circumstances of their students.
I love my advisory—it gives me a chance to keep track of where I am and know what is important for me to be doing. [My advisor is] also great to talk to … she cares about me. —66th grade student in the Northwest
Mobility. Poverty often places another kind of constraint on families—the ability to provide stable housing. Students often move from one location to another because their parents are in search of work or are dealing with other issues that require them to move. Frequent moves almost always have a negative academic and social impact on students.
We had to figure out how to make sure that the family understood what we were trying to do. The telephone was disconnected, translated letters mailed home yielded no response, and notes sent through the student didn't work either. Two attempts to drive by the apartment and knock on the door found no one home. Finally, we reached them through a neighborhood connection one of our paraprofessionals had with the family. We had our conference in the community building at their apartment complex. It went great! —Middle school teacher, HP/HP school in the South
