Policy for Educating Homeless Youth
The McKinney Act of 1987, or P.L. 100-77, ensures that each child of a homeless individual, and each homeless youth shall have equal access to the same free, appropriate public education as provided to other children and youth. Under the Act, schools are prohibited from delaying a homeless child’s entry into school due to delays in obtaining school records. Rules regarding guardianship must be waived for homeless students living with foster parents or relatives other than their legal guardians.
Parent Involvement Policy
PPEP TEC High School values the involvement of parents and sees it as a critical part in the planning and ongoing evaluation of our educational programs. We would like to share with our parents and the community information on policies related to parental involvement district wide and for our Title I schools, as well as our policy related to the enrollment and education of students who are homeless.
