At Phoenix #1, we are committed to supporting all students, including children and youth experiencing homelessness, to provide equal access to public education. We work diligently across the District from our transportation team to our social workers to ensure all students have everything they need including food, transportation and clothing. We want children enrolled and successful in school, no matter what their housing situation may be.
The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act defines educational rights and responsibilities to children and youth who are experiencing homelessness. Each state and local educational agency shall ensure that each educationally homeless child and youth have equal access to the same free, appropriate public education, including a public preschool education, provided to housed children and youth. Further, homeless children and youth shall have immediate access to the curriculum and any supportive services needed to ensure that they have an opportunity to be successful in school.
If your family is lacking a fixed, adequate, and regular place to sleep, please contact the Phoenix #1 MV Liaison at (602) 523-8988.
