Notice of Homeless Education Programs
Each year, more than 800,000 school-age children in the United States experience homelessness. The McKinney-Vento Act requires that homeless children must have access to the education and other services that they need to meet the same challenging state academic achievement standards to which all students are held. The Williamsburg Community School District is required to provide activities for, and services to, homeless children, including preschool-age homeless children and youths, enabling them to enroll in, attend, and succeed in school or preschool programs. The law requires all school districts to inform parents or guardians of their rights under this provision.
