(KPLR) - There are nearly 29,000 homeless students enrolled in public schools throughout the state of Missouri. Many school districts are struggling to meet their needs due to a lack of funding or a lack of programs. However, the Jennings Public School District is receiving high marks for providing much-needed services to help students achieve academic success. There are washers and dryers and health clinics in every school. The cafeterias provide hot meals Monday through Saturday. There is a food pantry. And Jennings will soon open a foster home called “The Hope House” to give homeless students a place to call home. Tonight on The Pulse of St. Louis, learn how Jennings secured resources to offer its unique programs and what else the district is doing to break down educational barriers.
