The Connecticut State Department of Education will ensure that all Connecticut children in homeless situations have the opportunity to attend, enroll in and succeed in school. The federal McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act requires all school districts to ensure access to public education for children and youth experiencing homelessness and ensure success in school once enrolled. This includes:

  • Choice of School;
  • Comparable Services;
  • State or Local Policies Must Not Keep Homeless Children from Attending School;
  • and Homeless Children Must Not Be Segregated.
