The McKinney-Vento Act is a federal law that provides rights and protections to homeless children and youth.
The Adams 12 Five Star Schools Homeless Education Program exists to remove barriers to education and promote academic success by developing and implementing policies, procedures, and systems that support enrollment and retention of children and youth experiencing unstable housing. Our goals are to provide one-on-one assistance with basic needs in collaboration with the Student and Family Outreach Program; prompt close working relationships between families and school district personnel; and encourage collaboration between the school district and community agencies.
The team of liaisons that make up the Student and Family Outreach Program support all the district's homeless students and families. Leigh Her-Moua is the lead homeless liaison for Adams 12 Five Star Schools and can be reached at (720) 972-4759.
