• Homeless Services

    Knox County Schools ensures that students experiencing homelessness have equal access to the same free appropriate public education as provided to other students. The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Improvement Act gives children and youth experiencing homelessness the right to attend school, no matter where they live or how long they have lived there. Students experiencing homelessness also have access to transportation to and from their schools of origin or zoned schools.
    Knox County Schools provides a full-time Liaison to work with and assist children experiencing homelessness and their families. The Liaison provides ongoing sustainability in the program by ensuring that children experiencing homelessness are immediately enrolled in school and receive the appropriate services and resources for which they are eligible. They are provided with school supplies and transportation to their schools of origin to help maintain stability in their educational services.
