Homeless Student Resources
The Mahanoy Area School District believes that homeless youth should have access to free and appropriate public education and wishes to limit the barriers that homeless students may face. Our goal is to have the educational process continue as uninterrupted as possible while children are in homeless situations. Homeless children and youth means individuals who lack a fixed, regular and adequate nighttime residence and includes children and youth who are:
9. Unaccompanied youth which means a homeless child or youth not in the physical custody of a parent or guardian. This includes youth who have run away from home; been abandoned or forced out of home by a parent, guardian, or other caretaker; or separated from a parent or guardian for any other reason.
Should you have any questions, you can contact the MASD Homeless Liaison, Mrs. Andrea Caulfield at firstname.lastname@example.org or 570-773-3443 x 4165.
