Section 4 describes the data collection process in North Dakota. Section 5 discusses North Dakota school law and the homeless child, including implications for residency, placement, tuition-free agreements, and immunization. Section 6 details the state's 1989-90 goals for the education of homeless children and youth. Section 7 describes provisions to publish and circulate the plan and to solicit comment and input through public hearings. Section 8 lists assurances of compliance with requirements for Federal funding. The following attachments are provided: (1) a reprint of Subtitle B of the McKinney Act; (2) the state's preliminary status report; (3) the final survey form sent to school officials; (4) the final survey form sent to service providers; and (5) the final status report.
