Kiski Area School District Learning Has No Boundaries - Every Child. Every Classroom. Every Day.

Student & Parent Support

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act was established in 1987 and amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015. The Act defines the term "homeless children and youths" as individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate night time residence.
 
The federal mandate ensures that homeless children and youth have access to the same free and appropriate public education as other children. Children who are homeless may qualify for assistance with school lunch, school supplies, tutoring and transportation so that they can remain in their school of origin. 
 
If you believe that your child may qualify for this service, please contact the Director of Student Services: Dr. Richael Anderson at 724-842-0452 or keystone@kiskiarea.com.
