Homeless Education Program

Education Service Center Region 13’s Homeless Education program (HEP) has worked with regional school districts, and charter schools for over 20 years to encourage and support the identification, enrollment, and academic success of children and youth without homes.

Students without homes have certain rights under the federal law. This law is the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act. Students and families may be unaware of their rights under this Act.  School district staff have responsibilities to ensure the academic success of children and youth without homes. Region 13’s HEP provides training, information, and resources as to how best help these most vulnerable children succeed.

Region 13’s HEP offers educational, informational, and networking opportunities, including on-site trainings, center-based workshops, and technical assistance for homeless liaisons and campus staff.
