Homeless Education
The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act requires that all schools provide homeless students with immediate access to an education, even if the child lacks school records, a birth certificate, medical/immunizations documents, or proof of residency. The Wichita Public Schools has a strong commitment to ensure that all homeless children and youth receive a meaningful opportunity to enroll and attend all public schools in the district. The Wichita Public Schools McKinney-Vento Office acts as a resource for homeless families and school personnel facing questions or assistance related to homeless children and youth. The program provided services to over 2700 students in 2013-2014 school year.  If you would like more information about the McKinney-Vento Homeless program contact the McKinney-Vento Liaison, Cynthia Martinez.
