McKinney Vento-Texas Education for Homeless Children & Youth Program (TEHCY)

McKinney Vento – Texas Education for Homeless Children & Youth Program (TEHCY)


The purpose of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act is to identify and remove barriers for children and youth experiencing homelessness and ensure that students in these circumstances have equitable access to all available supports and resources to meet the same challenging state academic standards established for all students.




All Local Education Agencies (LEAs) are required to designate an appropriate staff member as their local McKinney-Vento liaison.  The liaison assists with ensuring that children in homeless situations are identified as homeless, are enrolled in school, and are receiving the educational services for which they are eligible.
