Student Name: List the name of each nonresident student placed in a private home who is being educated in accordance with Section 1305 of the “Pennsylvania Public School Code of 1949.”
NOTE: Section 1305 of the “Pennsylvania Public School Code of 1949” provides for the education of a nonresident child placed in the home of a resident, such resident being compensated for keeping the child. LEAs should obtain a statement from the placing agency that the foster parent is receiving compensation and retain this information for review by auditors. This information should be updated each school year to verify residency status.
Current Grade Level: Report the current grade level in which the student was educated.
Name and Address of Resident (Foster Parent) With Whom Child is Placed: Report the name and address of the resident (foster parent) with whom the nonresident child lived during the school year.
Name, Address, and Resident School District of Custodial Parent or Guardian: Report the name and address of the custodial parent or guardian and the name of the resident school district.
NOTE: If the foster placement agency is unwilling to provide this information because of confidentiality concerns, a letter from the placement agency will be acceptable for audit purposes. The letter should indicate that the name, address, and resident school district of the custodial parent cannot be provided because of confidentiality concerns and that the child’s custodial parent or guardian does not reside in the foster school district.
Name and Address of Placing Agency: Report the name and address of the agency placing the student in the private home.
Aggregate Days Enrolled: Report the aggregate days enrolled (membership) for each student listed. The Days Enrolled (field #8) will be uploaded in the PIMS “Student Calendar Fact” file.
NOTE: If a foster parent’s school district contracts with another school district, an intermediate unit, or a career technology center to provide educational services to Section 1305 nonresident foster children, then the foster parent’s school district is responsible for completing the PDE-4507 and should provide a copy plus back-up documentation to the educating LEA.
