Checklist for Local Educational Agency (LEA) Services to Children and Youth in Homeless and Highly Mobile Situations

Services to homeless children are required by all Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) in the No Child Left Behind Act, and are primarily found under the requirements of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act of 2001 (Title X, Part C No Child Left Behind Act) and under Title I. The minimal requirements for services to homeless children and youth from both of these sections of the law are included in this checklist. LEAs receiving Title I, Part A funds for any fiscal year must have a Homeless Education Plan with a description of the services the LEA will provide homeless children, including the services provided with funds reserved under Title I, Part A Sec. 1113.
