 If families need assistance with any of the following, please contact me: 

  1. Navigating community resources.
  2. Concerns with addressing emotional, behavioral, or social issues that may be interfering with a student’s ability to be successful in school, at home, or in the community.  
  3. Are experiencing homelessness as a family/unaccompanied Minor.

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act and PACT Charter School assure all homeless and highly mobile students’ educational rights.

Submit the completed form to the school office or social worker (District Homeless Liaison). Your information is confidential and kept on file for the current school year only.
