  • Research has shown that when schools partner with families, improvements are seen in student attendance, behavior, and learning. As parents, teachers, and other caring adults, our job is to provide our children with:

    A safe, nurturing environment.
    An opportunity to develop to their fullest potential.
    Knowledge and skills to succeed in school and in life.
    Support and guidance in all stages of their development.

  • Mission

    To ensure that homeless children and young people have access to a free, appropriate public education, comparable to that provided for the children of any Virginia resident and consistent with Virginia’s mandatory school attendance laws.

    Program Description

    The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, Title IX, Part A of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), authorizes the State Board of Education to make grants to local education agencies for the purposes of facilitating the enrollment, attendance, and success of children and youth experiencing homelessness. The Virginia Department of Education has designated The College of William & Mary School of Education as the institution responsible for effective coordination of the Virginia Homeless Education Program. The program is called Project HOPE-Virginia. Information about the state program and local resources can be found on the HOPE Web site:http://www.wm.edu/hope
