Last Updated: 6/26/2019 1:26 PM

McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act of 2001
Each State Educational Agency shall ensure that each child of a homeless individual and each homeless youth have equal access to the same free, appropriate public education, including a public preschool education, as provided to other children and youth.” (Title X, Part C, § 721(1))

The McKinney-Vento program is designed to address the problems that homeless children and youth face in enrolling, attending, and succeeding in school.  Homeless children and youth should have access to educational and other services that they need to meet the same Wyoming State Standards and Assessments to which all students are held. States and local education agencies are required to review and undertake steps to revise laws, regulations, practices, or policies that may act as barriers to the enrollment, attendance, or success in school of homeless children and youth.
