C.A.R.E./McKinney-Vento Program

  • Our mission is to assist homeless and transitional students, preschool through 12th grade, with both school attendance and achievement. What homeless children need most of all is a home…but while they are experiencing homelessness, what they need most is to remain in school. School is one of the few stable, secure places in the lives of homeless children and youth–a place where they can acquire the skills they need to help them escape poverty.  


    All students who are considered homeless/in transition (individuals who lack a fixed, regular and adequate nighttime residence) are afforded certain rights under the law ( McKinney Vento Homeless Assistance Act reauthorized by Title X, Part C of the No Child Left Behind Act. 

               Immediate enrollment, even if the family lacks the records normally required for enrollment
              Placement in the student's school of origin, unless this is against the family's wishes
              Transportation to and from the student's school of origin
               Free school meals
