Education for all

  • The McKinney–Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act guarantees a free and appropriate public education for all homeless children and youth. B.E.C. 42 U.S.C. 11431 outlines procedures for deciding school placement, enrolling students, and determining responsibility.

    Federal and state laws make our responsibility clear. With the huge number of homeless children currently attending public schools, we must provide proper educational support and services.
