OC District Committee maintains McKinney-Vento homeless provision

– (3/19/07)

The Old Colony Regional Vocational Technical High School District Committee maintains a policy which allows continuity and necessary services for homeless children. This is a federal requirement authorized under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act, a component of the “No Child Left Behind Act.” NCLB requires districts, under most circumstances, to allow a homeless child to continue to attend his/her “school of origin” and entitles them to achieve the education standards set for all children. The District-appointed Homeless Education Liaison is Ms. Anne Spirlet, of the school’s Guidance Department.
