More than 35,000 public school students in Washington were homeless last school year, according to new figures released Tuesday.
About 3.3 percent of Washington students are homeless.
More than two-thirds of those kids are in families that are doubled up with other families. The number of kids living in hotels and in shelters continues to rise, as well.
The state counted more than 1,600 kids living completely without shelter, up from 1,036 in 2011.
