Administrative support for local homeless liaisons and/or families of children and youth is imperative to eliminating barriers.  Some of the supports needed to be addressed by the administrators are: implementing policy and procedures, educational stability, school access, appoint and empower local homeless liaison, and federal/state funding for McKinney-Vento and Title I allowables in the School Improvement Plans (SIP).  

McKinney-Vento Law into Practice

  • Children and Youth in Many Different Living Situations Are Considered Homeless Under Federal Law

    • Districts Must Provide Educational Stability for Homeless Students

    • Districts Must Provide Immediate School Access for Homeless Students

    • Districts Must Appoint a Local Homeless Education Liaison

    • Districts Must Serve Homeless Students with Title I Funds
