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. Students or parents who are in homeless situations should contact their campus counselor or the district homeless liaison:
