CPSS Title X McKinney-Vento Homeless Programs through CPSB

Description:

Calcasieu Parish School System Federal Program Title X offers assistance to guarantee the rights of students to receive a public education without barriers. This homeless school transition program helps provide educational stability !€“ stability that is essential for academic success !€“ for children and youth whose lives have been disrupted by the loss of housing.

Purpose:
The McKinney !€“ Vento program is designed to address the problems that homeless children and youth have faced in enrolling, attending, and succeeding in school. Under this program, State educational agencies (SEAs) must ensure that each homeless child and youth has equal access to the same free, appropriate public education, including a public preschool education, as other children and youth. Homeless children and youth should have access to the educational and other services that they need to enable them to meet the same challenging State student academic achievement standards to which all students are held. In addition, homeless students may not be separated from the mainstream school environment. States and districts are required to review and undertake steps to revise laws, regulations, practices or policies that may act as a barrier to the enrollment, attendance, or success in school of homeless children and youth.
