Social Workers/McKinney-Vento

School Social Workers
School Social Workers assist in making school a successful and relevant experience for ALL students. As a member of the educational team, School Social Workers work to strengthen bonds between the student, the home, the community and the school. School Social Workers work within the following three domains: the school, the home, and the community.

McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Act
McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act of 1987 is a United States federal law that provides federal money for homeless shelter programs. Insures homeless children transportation to and from school free and allowing children to attend their school of origin (prior to homeless). Requires schools to register homeless children even if they lack normally required documents, such as immunization records or proof of residence. Each state must designate a statewide homeless coordinator.
