An Evaluation of the PGCPS Homeless Education Program, SY2015-2016

This evaluation will examine the extent to which the PGCPS Homeless Education Program provided services to homeless students as mandated by the McKinney-Vento Act. The evaluation will also examine whether the Homeless Education Program provided services that alleviated the effects of barriers to homeless students’ academic performance in a manner that made their experience more similar to non-homeless students.

Project Status: Currently underway, scheduled for completion in December 2016.
