Displaced Student and Family Assistance

  • Homeless Students & McKinney-Vento Act

    The McKinney–Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act guarantees a free and appropriate public education for all homeless children and youth.  “Homeless” is defined as anyone lacking a fixed, adequate, regular nighttime residence. The law makes sure that these students receive a free and suitable public education by removing barriers to school enrollment and daily participation in school activities. If you are experiencing homelessness or feel you qualify as homeless based on the definition listed above, please contact the Central Dauphin School District homeless liaison for more information and to discuss your situation to determine if you qualify for additional support/services. The Central Dauphin School District homeless Liaison can be reached at 717-545-4703,  x70509.
