Homelessness and Foster Care Services

Students staying in shelters, hotels, or other temporary situations and students in foster care, have certain rights and legal protections to ensure access to public education.

 

Aurora Charter School (ACS) is guided by the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act and the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). These federal laws provide students experiencing homelessness and students in foster care with certain rights so they have access to opportunities that will help them meet the same high academic standards expected of all students at ACS.
