Why This Indicator Matters
Fortunately, researchers find that children are also highly resilient and differences between children who have experienced homelessness and low-income children who have not typically diminish in the years following a homeless episode.
Definition and Source
The numerator for the percentage is the number of homeless children enrolled in K-12 public schools for each respective geographic area. The denominator for the percentage is the total number of children enrolled in K-12 public schools for each respective geographic area.
Data for this measure are the result of the McKinney-Vento Education of Homeless Children and Youth Assistance Act. The McKinney-Vento Act is a federal law that ensures immediate enrollment and educational stability for homeless children and youth. McKinney-Vento provides federal grants supporting state efforts to provide equal access to free and appropriate public education to homeless students and to gather information about those students and their needs on an annual basis.
GEOGRAPHY - Data reflect the school location, not the student’s place of residence.
TIME FRAME - Academic Year (Fall through Spring).
