McKinney Vento- Assistance for Homeless Youth

Education of Children and Youth Experiencing Homelessness

 

The main objective of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Improvement Act of 2001 (Public Law 107-110, Subtitle B) is to make sure homeless youth have access to appropriate education while removing barriers that homeless children face.  Its goal is to minimize interruptions to the education of homeless youth.  The Lakeland School District is committed to working collaboratively with families and local agencies to support homeless youth in our school community.  If you believe you fall into the category of children in youth experiencing homelessness or know of someone who is please contact the homeless liaison listed below.
