The Placer County Homeless Network (PCHN)
is a county-wide consortium, composed of four lead School Districts who share responsibility in ensuring educational opportunities for students in homeless situations. PCHN is committed to providing needed resources to students who lack fixed, regular, or adequate residency through a multi-district approach to assist students in reaching their maximum educational and vocational potential and overall well-being. PCHN members are working interdependently to ensure all students and families have equal and appropriate access to all services and programs available to them, including but not limited to, Gifted and Talented Education, AVID, Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, Special Education, Indian Education, English Learner Programs, Career Technical Education Pathways, Title I, school meal programs, before and after-school programs, Transitional Kindergarten, Seal of Bi-literacy, and preschool programs, without being stigmatized or segregated on the basis of their homeless status. School enrollment, school stability, and academic success for all Placer County McKinney-Vento eligible students are the primary goals of PCHN.
The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Services Program Coordinator serves as the County Liaison for purposes of appeals before appealing to the California Department of Education (CDE).
