The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act: Under federal and state law, children and youth experiencing homelessness have a right to a free, appropriate public education (FAPE). The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act (federal law) provides assistance to states to help them ensure educational rights and protections for children and youth experiencing homelessness. This program helps State Educational Agencies (SEAs) ensure that homeless children, including preschoolers and youths, have equal access to FAPE, including a public preschool education, as provided to other children and youth.
Please contact Mrs. Brown, Taylor Creek Elementary School Counselor, if you are experiencing homelessness or have questions regarding needs. firstname.lastname@example.org or 512-564-2585
