Welcome to the Education for Children and Youth Experiencing Homelessness Program
The Pennsylvania Homeless Children’s Initiative is the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s response to The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Improvements Act of 2001 (Sections 721-726 – P.L. 107 -110 NCLB.) The key mandate of the law is to ensure that homeless children and youth have access to free, appropriate education on an equal basis with other children.
If you are aware of any children in the district who possibly fit the homeless child criteria, please contact the Kane Area School District’s homeless liaison, Jeff Kepler. Services are available for these students. More information on Pennsylvania’s Homeless Initiative and available services can be obtained by contacting Jeff Kepler, Kane Area School District’s Homeless Liaison, at 814-837-9570 x 1201 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
