Education for Homeless Students

  • McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Improvement Act

    The federal McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Improvement Act and Texas State law (Texas Education Code Chapter 25) protect the right for homeless children and youth to receive a free and appropriate public education.
     
    Homelessness includes children and youth whose nighttime residence is not stable/adequate and is due to a loss of housing or economic hardship. Under the law, no student shall be stigmatized by school personnel due to homelessness.For additional information you may contact your campus counselor or the individual listed below.
