Displaced Student and Family AssistanceHomeless 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 Emily Town at 717-884-0950 or via email [email protected].  To learn  more about the McKinney-Vento Act, please visit the links provided:
