Homeless Services

Subtitle VII-B of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, reauthorized by Title X, Part C, of the No Child Left Behind Act, ensures educational rights and protections for children and youth experiencing homelessness. The term "homeless children and youth" includes individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence.
The local homeless educational liaison is responsible for ensuring the identification, school enrollment, attendance, and opportunities for academic success of students in homeless situations.  Linking students and their families to school and community services is an important service provided by the homeless educational liaison.
For more information regarding Homeless Services, please call the MISD Homeless Educational Liaison, Dr. Carolyn Fiaschetti, 936-276-2150.
