Homelessness

Homelessness is when you do not have a permanent home and are:

  • staying with friends or family because you lost housing;
  • living in a shelter, including transitional programs;
  • staying in motels because you cannot get your own home; or
  • living on the streets, in a vehicle, tent or other nonpermanent structure.

The McKinney-Vento Act ensures educational rights and protections for children experiencing homelessness. These rights and protections include:

  • school stability,
  • school access, and
  • support for academic success.

If you lack a permanent home, you can receive help to keep them enrolled at Northeast Bradford School District. For more information, contact Norma Paisley-Moore, (570) 744-2521, ext. 2265 or nmoore@nebpanthers.com.
