McKinney-Vento Act

McKinney-Vento Liaisons

All Local Education Agencies (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.  For additional information, or if you have questions or concerns, please contact the Region 20 McKinney-Vento Liaison, Dr. Cynthia Hernandez, at 210-370-5773 or [email protected].
