In such circumstances, Ameristudent will take all reasonable steps to relocate the guest to another Homestay, if required.

9.2  For Guests enrolled in the Ameristudent Secondary School Program, if the school expels the guest, AmeriStudent shall notify the guest and the guest’s parents or agent in writing of the guest’s duty to attend school in the US. At its discretion, AmeriStudent may send a copy of the notice to the parent(s) or guardian(s) to determine if there are any options to remain in the AmeriStudent program or in the US. If a guest is expelled or violates any law(s), and the AmeriStudent Management has determined that it warrants removal from the program, the guest will be sent back to his/her home country.
