Displaced Student and Family Assistance–Homeless Students and McKinney-Vento Act
The McKinney–Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act guarantees a free and appropriate public education for all homeless children and youth. “Homeless” is defined as anyone lacking a fixed, adequate, regular nighttime residence. The law makes sure that these students receive a free and suitable public education by removing barriers to school enrollment and daily participation in school activities. If you are experiencing homelessness or feel you qualify as homeless based on the definition listed above, please contact PA Steam Homeless Liason Ashley Rascoe at 717-884-0950 or via email [email protected].

Students, Teachers and Parents should immediately report allegations of sexual harassment or harassment to the Title IX coordinator.
Definitions of Sexual Harassment
- Any instance of “Quid Pro Quo” harassment by a school employee (i.e., unwelcome sexual harassment associated with some form of aid or benefit);
- Any unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature that a reasonable person would find to be so severe, pervasive, and objectively offensive that it effectively denies a person equal access to the school’s educational program or activity.
- Any instance of “Sexual assault,” “dating violence,” “domestic violence,” or “stalking” as those terms are defined under other Federal laws called the Clery Act and the Violence Against Women Act
