McKinney-Vento Homless Education Act
Every LEA (school district) must designate an appropriate staff person as a local Homeless Education Liaison. This person may also be a coordiator for other federal programs. Local Liaisons must ensure that:
- Children and youth in homeless situations are identified by school personnel and through coordination activities with other entities and agencies.
- Students experiencing homelessness enroll, and have a full and equal opportunity to succeed in school.
The Homeless Liaison at the ESC will assist LEAs in the identification and service of homeless students. The ESC will also provide trainings and resources for district Homeless Liaisons.
