Education of Homeless Children and Youth

To ensure that homeless children and youth in Michigan have access to a free and appropriate public school education. The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act (Subtitle VII-B) of 2002, part of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, requires the Department to implement the following:

  • Review and revise, if necessary, all legislation, policies and procedures which impede the enrollment and educational success of homeless children and homeless youth
  • Collect and report data regarding the number and location of homeless children and homeless youth
  • Adopt a state plan to establish comparable procedures for local and intermediate school boards to enroll and educate homeless children and homeless youth
  • Make grants available to local educational agencies to facilitate enrollment, attendance and educational success of homeless children and homeless youth
  • Coordinate interagency programs and activities with Federal, State and local agencies to enhance effective implementation of the McKinney-Vento Act
