Section 504:

 

The Homeless Education Program:

The McKinney Vento Act is designed to address problems that homeless children and youth have faced in enrolling, attending, and succeeding in school. Under The Homeless Education Program, State Education Agencies (SEAs) must ensure that each homeless child and youth has equal access to the same free and appropriate public education, including a preschool education, as other children and youth. Homeless children and youth should have access to the educational services that they need to enable them to meet the same challenging state student academic achievement standards to which all students are held. Every School District is required to have a Homeless Education Liaison

Homeless Education Program Services Included:

Provide support and guidance to homeless children and youth who are in transition, who lack a “fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence"
