Homeless student procedures
Each year, we work with students and families who are experiencing homelessness or housing insecurity. Under the Pennsylvania Education for Homeless Children and Youth State Plan, homeless children are defined as:
- Individuals who lack a fixed, regular and/or adequate nighttime residence.
The McKinney-Vento Act states that it is the policy of Congress that state educational agencies shall ensure that each child of a homeless individual and each homeless youth has equal access to the same free, appropriate public education--including a public preschool education--as provided to other children and youths.
If you meet the above criteria in the McKinney-Vento Act or if you are at risk of becoming homeless in the immediate future, please contact the Pupil Services Department at 610-779-0700 or email the district's social worker, Mrs. Ashley Rinehart at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
