Regular Education Services

McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act

A homeless child or youth lacks a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence due to economic hardship.

Established in 2002 as part of the No Child Left Behind Act, this service entitles homeless children to free, appropriate public education (including pre-school education). State must ensure children have equal access to the same public programs as other children in state.

Every student in a homeless situation will be designated a liaison.

The liaison must ensure that homeless children are identified, immediately enrolled in school, informed about educational rights, and receive educational services for which they're eligible.

Section 504

Section 504 is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities. Section 504 ensures that the child with a disability has equal access to an education. To accomplish this, the Section 504 team, lead by one of our school principals, creates an individual service or accommodation plan outlining what accommodations and modifications the student requires. This plan is similar to a special education individualized education plan, but it does not include goals or specialized instruction.

Anyone can refer a student for a Section 504 plan at any time by speaking with the school principal.
