McKinney-Vento Assistance for Homeless Youth

Education of Children and Youth Experiencing Homelessness

 The main objective of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Improvement Act of 2001 (Public Law 107-110. Subtitle B) is to make sure homeless youth have access to appropriate education while removing barriers that homeless children face.  Its goal is to minimize interruptions to the education of homeless youth.  The Forest City Regional School District is committed to working collaboratively with families and local agencies to support homeless youth in our school community.
