Through Education for Children & Youth Experiencing Homelessness (ECYEH) and the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, Souderton Area School District works to reduce and remove educational barriers for youth experiencing homelessness in the SASD community.
The office of the Homeless Liaison for the Souderton Area School District works with building personnel to help obtain eligible assistance, including educational resources and help with transportation, for:
- students living in emergency housing
- students or families displaced from their housing
- parents or guardians of students lacking housing
- someone working with homeless students and their families
The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act guarantees a free and appropriate public education for all homeless children and youth. B.E.C. 42 U.S.C. 11431 outlines procedures for making school placement decisions, enrolling students, and determining responsibility.
If you believe you may be eligible, please contact the SASD Homeless Liaison, your school counselor, or the Director of Pupil Services to find out what services and supports may be available.
