Bledsoe County Schools ensures homeless students have equal access to the same free appropriate public education as provided to other students.  The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Improvement Act gives children and youth in homeless situations the right to attend school, no matter where they live or how long they have lived there.  Homeless students also have access to transportation to and from their schools or origin or zoned schools.

Bledsoe County Schools provides a Homeless Liaison to work with and assist homeless children and their families.  The Liaison provides ongoing sustainability in the program by ensuring that homeless children are immediately enrolled in school and receive the appropriate services and resources for which they are eligible.  They are provided with school supplies and transportation to their schools of origin to help maintain stability in their educational services.  

For a list of community resources or for the Bledsoe County Homeless Board Policy, please see the Documents above.
