McKinney-Vento Act - Assistance for Homeless Students
The McKinney-Vento Act assures that funds provided through the Federal Government through the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), are set aside to reserve resources to help students who are now, or become homeless during the school year. These funds are not restricted to assisting students at identified Title I schools, but rather can be used to assist any student at any level in any of the schools operated by Tyler County.
Students are often in need of assistance when they lose their home and their belongings in a fire or flood or some other natural disaster, or when family circumstances require them to reside with other family members under long- or short-term conditions.
In any event, assistance is available to those in need. You will find iniformation about whom to contact for assistance on this web page. Although we hope you and your loved ones never need this help, please share the information with those you know who may need assistance.
