Placing Students Directly in Schools – School Placed Status (SP)
The School Placed status will be used when a school guarantees acceptance of a particular student with a signed Placement Acceptance Form uploaded into Global Link on the student’s Placement Detail page. Instructions for recording a School Placed request in Global Link can be found on the Record Placement Requests page. Most schools then take responsibility or collaborate in securing a family for the student.
School Placed Students count as part of a Team’s Community Placed pool even though they are designated for specific schools.
If the school fails to find a family for the student by May 25th, the Team must decide either to Community Place the student or return the student to Regionally Available.
School Placement requests for Sponsored Programs students will be reviewed and accepted on a case by case basis. Contact your Sponsored Programs Hosting Coordinator if you wish to School Place a YES or CBYX student.
To learn more about placing students, please review the Hosting Application Distribution Process.
