Other The project period will be from July 1, 2012, to June 30, 2015. The Elementary and Secondary Education Act requires local educational agencies to: (1) Appoint a “liaison” for homeless children. Some of the liaison's duties include ensuring access to education and support services, identifying students for services, and disseminating rights. (2) Keep homeless children in the same school of origin through the duration of their homelessness, at the request of the parent. (3) Provide transportation to ensure that homeless children can continue their education at the school of origin, at the request of the parent. (4) Enroll immediately, even if the homeless child does not have the proper enrollment papers or immunization records.
