The Fannett-Metal School District’s requirements for homeless families are identified in the district policy and the McKinney-Vento Act. The McKinney-Vento Act states that child welfare and local education agencies must work together so that children can have school stability and continuity, including trying to ensure children remain in their home school whenever possible. Resources will be provided by the district’s Homeless Liaison for students currently enrolled or upon enrollment in the Fannett-Metal School District, who are identified as homeless.
The Liaison may assist families with the following:
*Make sure students are enrolled in school immediately, even if they do not have the papers they would normally need.
*Help families and youth get immunizations, immunization records or other medical records, if a student needs them.
*Tell parents and youth about all transportation services and help set up transportation.
*Make sure students get all the school services they need.
*Link parents and guardians with programs and services the school and community offer.
Please contact Mrs. Lesley Kuhn, Fannett-Metal School District Homeless Liaison, with questions about homelessness, 349-2513 Ext. 3006 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
