Education for Children and Youth Experiencing Homelessness

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Association Improvement Act of 2001 (Pubic Law 107-110, Subtitle B) was enacted to make sure homeless youth have access to appropriate education while removing barriers that homeless children face.  The Act defines the term "homeless children and youths" as individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence.  It's goal is to minimize interruptions to the education of homeless youth.  The Lehighton Area School District is committed to working collaboratively with families and local agencies to support homeless youth in our school community.
