McKinney-Vento Liaisons

All Local Education Agenices (LEAs) are required to designate an appropriate staff member as their local homeless education liaison. The liaison assists with ensuring that children in homeless situations are identified as homeless, are enrolled in school, and are receiving the educational services for which they are eligible.
A list of the homeless liaisons at LEAs in the Region 20 area can be found on the Texas Homeless Education Office website.
