Education for Homeless Children and Youth Policy

The Antelope Valley Learning Academy (“Charter School”) Board of Directors recognizes that homelessness is a serious problem and is concerned, in particular, about the education of homeless children and youth in the Charter School. The Charter School desires to ensure that homeless children and youth are provided with equal access to its educational program, have an opportunity to meet the same challenging state of California academic standards, are provided a free and appropriate public education, are not stigmatized or segregated on the basis of their status as homeless, and to establish safeguards that protect homeless students from discrimination on the basis of their homelessness.
