Title XC – McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Act
BIE Title I Homeless Education and McKinney Vento Programs
The purpose of the BIE Title I Homeless Education and McKinney Vento Programs is to provide educational opportunities and support to its homeless youth and children. Homelessness exists within the reservations which the BIE serves and impacts enrollment, attendance and academic success of children and youth in this situation. All schools within the BIE must provide services to homeless youth and children and the BIE receives McKinney Vento Homeless Education Grant to support this effort.
The BIE has utilized the McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Act to develop its process to ensure that the children and youth attending BIE schools have access to a free and appropriate education and that the barriers faced by these students have equal opportunity in receiving quality education. The Homeless State Coordinator in the BIE will be responsible in administering this process. As a result, homeless students will receive comparable educational services received by non-homeless students.
