McKinney-Vento Posters

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has released new McKinney-Vento posters. There are two versions of the poster, one to assist parents of school-age youth and a second to assist unaccompanied youth. The posters are available in both English and Spanish.

Local Education Agencies (LEAs) can download the digital files below and post this information on their LEA homeless education program webpage.

LEAs should collaborate with their school staff and community partners (e.g. food pantries, faith-based organizations, local housing authorities, shelters, etc.) to share printed copies of this poster.
