I am wondering if this is possible and if so, how people do this?

I am pretty sure I saw kids getting picked up and dropped off by the school bus at our last campground..

If you have a house with no wheels, you’re good.
If you’re deemed homeless, you’re good.

In between those two, you’re a non-resident and must be rejected!

Is this best for the child? Only consideration that is important.

When you take your daughter to enroll in school, just give them the address of your RV Park. It is not the schools business that you live in an RV. 2nd. choice just ask school to enroll your child in "Independent Study" where you can home school or just enroll your child in the "Home School Program".

Yeah we ran into this as well, and nowadays an eLearning curriculum is available with most school districts so you can find a well rated one and reside there. We choose to pursue Khan Academy and resources from the local library, and they're generally ahead of their peer group.

I had a long drawn out response to this entirely ridiculous "2nd. choice."
But since the website crashed, just think about how bad that option is for a child that is growing up in a situation where their family unit is LIVING in a RV, presumably not voluntarily. IE their personal and financial situation dictates that that is the best they can do.

I saw an area in Texas outside of Austin that allowed RV park address as valid for school enrollment.
I wonder if there is a way to find out what other states allow this?

It's a matter of funding. If you aren't paying taxes into that particular school system then the town/district bears the burden of paying for the education but gets nothing in return. Granted the homeless most likely don't pay in either but there's a big difference between those who can't pay vs. those who just aren't paying.

Not true, you are paying the property tax of the park owner via your rent, same as if you lived in an apartment.

I don't know Pa laws, but am a retired school administrator. Is your mailing address the campground? Is the campground within the school district? Most importantly do you live at that address? If all answers are yes, your children can legally attend the school district. However, if you do not reside at the campground you reside outside the district and cannot enroll.

As mentioned above - each state laws may be a bit different.

Someone living in a state like Florida or Texas with tens of thousands of people, and their kids, living in RV parks as full-time residents. Not really a big deal.

Another state with very few people doing that - maybe a bigger burdern of proof as to what is the parents/ guardians real residence/ domicile.
