Homeless Education District Liaisons

As we engage in the excitement of back-to-school time, it is important to remember that many students start school without everything they need to access, stay stable in, and experience success in school and school activities.  Colorado school districts identified over 16,500 students as experiencing homelessness, or McKinney-Vento eligible, in the 2021-22 school-year. Back-to-school time is one of the primary times during the school year where districts identify and connect students experiencing homelessness to the services and supports they need to be successful.  Your role as the McKinney-Vento District Liaison is essential in ensuring students experiencing homelessness start school with the same opportunities to succeed as their housed peers. Please review the following Back-to-School Memo for helpful information and resources to support students experiencing homelessness in your district and community.
