Published: January 2020

Report Intro/Brief:
“The information in this report is a compilation of data about students who experienced homelessness during SYs 2015-16, 2016-17, and 2017-18. Students are included in this report if, at any point during those school years, they were enrolled in a public school and were identified as experiencing homelessness by LEA homeless liaisons. Children and youth who were not enrolled in a public school or were only homeless during a school break are not included in this report. Additionally, data for grade thirteen was excluded from tables and figures in this report, unless otherwise noted. As a result, readers are cautioned to read this report with the knowledge that the data are limited, and that more children and youth experience homelessness in the United States than is reflected here…

This report includes comparative tables and graphics for descriptive purposes; they do not address factors that lead to homelessness experienced by students, the educational outcomes they achieved, or the complex variables that impact the implementation of programs under the McKinney-Vento Act. Information in this report may be used to answer critical questions about the program and identify needed technical assistance and policy updates; considerations regarding underlying factors go beyond the scope of the report and are, therefore, omitted.”
