McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Act
The McKinney-Vento Act governs the rights of homeless students. Each child of a homeless individual and each homeless youth has equal access to the same free, appropriate public education, as provided to other children and youths. A “homeless child” is defined as provided in the McKinney Homeless Assistance Act and State law. Generally, a homeless student is a student who does not have a regular, fixed place of residence. Homeless students have special rights in regard to school choice, transportation, and proof of residency. If you have any questions, please contact the Superintendent of Schools at 286-3812 for more information.

Title IX Coordinator:
A school’s employee designated to coordinate its efforts to comply with Title IX must be referred to as the Title IX Coordinator. The school must notify students, employees, applicants for employment, unions and parents or legal guardians of students of the name, office address, e-mail address, and telephone number of the Title IX Coordinator. Schools must also promptly display the Title IX Coordinator’s contact information on their websites. Any person may report sex discrimination to the Title IX Coordinator by mail, e-mail, telephone, in-person or any other means that results in the Title IX Coordinator receiving the person’s report.
