Homelessness - McKinney-Vento Act

Students experiencing homelessness lack long-term housing, move frequently, and can be highly mobile.  Those students are more likely to experience trauma and feel unsettled. Students who are experiencing homelessness often experience interruptions in their education and fall behind in school. Accordingly, the McKinney-Vento Homeless Children and Youth Program has guided the work to ensure that homeless children have equal access to the same high-quality educational opportunities as non-homeless children and youth.  Students need to be in contact with reliable individuals who support and encourage the whole student, academically and non-academically. Maintaining educational stability is a priority for Newton Schools as we work with students experiencing homelessness.
