• McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act

    New York's Education for Homeless Children and Youth program provides support to ensure that homeless children and youth have equal access to the same free, appropriate, public education - including public preschool - provided to other New York children, with the opportunity to meet the same challenging state content and student performance standards. Every school district, BOCES and charter school is required to have an LEA liaison whose duties include the removal of barriers to the enrollment, attendance and success of homeless children and youth in school.

    Mrs. Pernesky is Letchworth's Homeless Liason.
