Jamie Little, Student Services Coordinator


Congress reauthorized in January of 2002 the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, Subtitle VII-B, originally passed in 1987 to help people experiencing homelessness.á This federal law includes the Education of Homeless Children and Youth Program that entitles children who are homeless to a free, appropriate public education and requires schools to remove barriers to their enrollment, attendance, and success in school.á This Act protects all students who do not have a fixed, regular and adequate residence, such as students living in the following situations:
  • doubled-up housing with other families or friends due to hardship;
  • runaway/homeless youth shelters (even if parents invite the youth home); hotels or motels
  • shelters, including domestic violence shelters;
  • transitional housing shelters;
  • cars, abandoned building parks, the streets or other public spaces;
  • campgrounds or inadequate trailer homes;
  • awaiting foster care placement;
  • and/or abandoned in a hospital.
For more information, contact Jamie Little, Homeless Liaison, at (336) 246-7175, or email her at jamie.little@ashe.k12.nc.us.
