Homeless Education

Our Mission: To ensure that homeless children and youth have access to a free, appropriate public education, comparable to that provided to the children of any Arizona resident and consistent with Arizona’s mandatory school attendance laws.

McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act of 2001 offers educational services for the children of families in transition to permanent housing. As a family experiencing transitional housing, you have the right to:

  • Continue your child’s education at the school they attended prior to becoming homeless (their school of origin).
  • Enroll your child in any public school that other students are eligible to attend from the same attendance area.
  • Have your child enroll in and have full and equal opportunity to succeed without being separated from other students.
  • Receive educational services for which your child is eligible including transportation services, participation in meal programs, referrals to health care/immunization services, and other appropriate services.
