Alpine Elementary School
Mckinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act
Its mission is 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. Subtitle B of Title VII of the McKinney-Veto Homeless Assistance Act (42U.S.C. 11431 et seq.) is included in the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015. The reauthorization requires that all children and youths experiencing homelessness are immediately enrolled in school and have educational opportunities equal to those of their non-homeless peers. The statute requires every public school district and charter holder to designate a Homeless Liaison to ensure that homeless students are identified and their needs are being met.
