McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act

This site contains information pertaining to homeless services provided through the Wattsburg Area School District. Please utilize the information below to learn more about homelessness and the McKinney-Vento Act. Please contact Rebecca Kelley, Assistant to the Superintendent; [email protected] or by phone at (814) 824-3400 x4132 for more information.

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act can provide school stability for your child if you do not have a permanent home and are:  
  • Staying with friends or family because you lost housing.
  • Living in a shelter, including transitional programs.
  • Staying in motels because you cannot get your own home.
  • Living on the streets, in a car, van, tent or other nonpermanent structure.
As an eligible student you have the right to: 
  • Receive a free, appropriate public education. 
  • Enroll in a school immediately, even if lacking documents normally required for enrollment.
  • Enroll in school or continue attending your school of origin (the school you attended when permanently housed or the school in which you were last enrolled.) if that is your preference and is feasible. 
  • Receive transportation to and from school origin if you request this. 
  • Receive education services comparable to those provided to other students, according to your needs as a student.

If you find yourself in this situation, please contact Mrs. Rebecca Kelley, Wattsburg Area School District Homeless Liaison at 814/824-3400 x4532.
