• HOMELESS EDUCATION

    The Homeless Education Program ensures access to a free appropriate public education (FAPE) for children and youth experiencing homelessness in accordance with McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Act, Title VII- B, reauthorized in 2002 as part of the No Child Left Behind Act. The Program for the Education of Homeless Children and Youth provides the following services:

      • Transportation
      • Educational Support and Remediation Services
      • School Supplies
      • Community Based Resources

    The Homeless Education Liaison acts as a link between family, shelter, school system and community resources to coordinate educational services for homeless students.  The Liaison renews and/or develops an awareness and sensitivity to the needs of homeless children and youth among school system and community services personnel through presentations and other activities.  The ultimate role of the Liaison is to eliminate barriers to school enrollment, attendance and academic success for each child.
