Homeless and Unaccompanied Youth
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 may possibly fit the criteria above, please contact the Kane Area School District’s homeless liaison, Linda Lorenzo. Services and supports are available for these students. More information on Pennsylvania’s Homeless Initiative and available services can be obtained by contacting Linda Lorenzo, Kane Area School District’s Homeless Liaison, at 814-837-9570 x 1217 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
