McKinney Vento Homeless Plan

Homeless children and youth are provided the opportunity to receive a free and appropriate public education regardless of their residency status at Opelika City Schools. The program ensures that homeless students are afforded equal access to academic and other services that will allow them to meet the same challenging state achievement standards as non-homeless students. The program provides procedural guidelines to ensure that homeless students are not denied enrollment due to the lack of registration documentation at the time of enrollment. Homeless children and youth, including preschool age children, will be enrolled immediately pending obtainment of the necessary documents. The school counselor will assist parents guardians, or unaccompanied youth in obtaining the proper documentation. For more information please contact Kenneth Burton or Leanne Turnham at 334-745-9700.
