Excerpt
Excerpt: The 1987 Steward B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act was enacted to confront the problems associated with homelessness in the United States. The Act was amended in 1990 and 1994. Subtitle VII-B of the Act, as amended in 1994, mandates state action to ensure that homeless children and youth have equal access to the same free and appropriate public education as their nonhomeless counterparts. The 1994 amendments to the McKinney Act provide local educational authorities with increased flexibility in the use of funds, specify the rights of homeless preschoolers to a free and appropriate public preschool education, give parents of homeless children and youth a greater voice regarding their children?s school placement, and require educational authorities to coordinate with housing authorities. The Education for Homeless Children and Youth Program awards grants to state education agencies (SEAs) to provide services to homeless children and youth, to establish an Office of the Coordinator of Education of Homeless Children and Youth, and to award subgrants to local education agencies (LEAs) to help homeless children and youth enroll in, attend, and succeed in school. The Office of Coordinator prepares and implements a state plan describing how the state will provide for the education of homeless children and youth. To receive McKinney subgrants, LEAs apply to the state. States award subgrants on the basis of need, determined primarily by the number of homeless children and youth enrolled in LEAs and the ability of the LEAs to meet the needs of this population. However, each LEA in the state--regardless of whether it receives a McKinney subgrant--has responsibilities under the Act.
