Services for Homeless Students

Filed under:

Durham Public Schools ensures educational rights and protections for children and youth experiencing homelessness in accordance with the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act.  A homeless liaison is employed by the district to assist families and children to receive educational services for which they are eligible.

Children experiencing homelessness should have access to the education and other services they need to ensure that they have an opportunity to meet the same challenging state student academic achievement standards to which all students are held.
