McKinney-Vento Homeless


 The Children In Transition program was created to collaborate with teachers and schools to help homeless students continue to be successful in school.  A homeless liaison has been appointed to advocate for these students.  Some of the ways the liaison can help are:

  • Provide advocacy and resources to the family and student for basic needs
  • Provide training on how to recognize the signs and symptoms of homelessness
  • Provide teaching strategies to be inclusive of these students
If you know a student who lacks permanent night time shelter, please contact a Building Coordinator (each school has their own, see below).
