Homeless LiaisonMcKinney-Vento Homeless Student Assistance Act

Body

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Student Assistance Act protects the rights of all homeless students. The Act describes a homeless student as one who:
  • Lives in a car, park, or other substandard arrangement
  • Lives in a shelter
  • Lives doubled up with other persons due to financial hardship
  • Lives with another person due to the death or incarceration of a parent
  • Lives as a youth on their own due to abandonment or runaway status

Students categorized as homeless/transitional according to the McKinney-Vento Homeless Student Assistance Act participate in this program.

The Homeless Liaison through referrals made by district employees, community members, city agency employees, or self-referrals identifies students. The  Homeless Liaison assists in immediately enrolling these students in school, identifying and providing assistance to meet their academic and non-academic needs, and ensuring that barriers to education are eliminated.

Please contact Lori Casey at (847) 596-5630 if you have any questions, are homeless, or know of a student who may need assistance through this program.
