The McKinney-Vento Education of Homeless Children and Youth
Assistance Act is a federal law that ensures immediate enrollment and
educational stability for homeless children and
youth. McKinney-Vento provides federal funding to states for the purpose
of supporting district programs that serve homeless students.
Chico Unified School District partners with the Butte County Office of Education to provide assistance to homeless students and families in compliance with the McKinney Vento Homeless Assistance Act. Program personnel work in collaboration with school personnel and community service agencies in an effort to maximize access to various educational, social and enrichment programs which promote academic success and student achievement.
Homeless & Foster Youth Resources
All youth should have the opportunity for educational success, no
matter what their housing or family situation may be. The School Ties
program promotes this success through advocacy, mentoring, tutoring, and
assistance with the transition to independent living.
