The McKinney-Vento Act was enacted to address the numerous barriers homeless children face in obtaining a free, appropriate public education. The Act ensures educational rights and protections for children and youth experiencing homelessness.
TSD also participates in CDE’s Homeless Education Sub-Grantee Program, which funds district programs, initiatives and resources to address the barriers faced by homeless children and youth in accessing and succeeding in school.
