Program Spotlight: Schoolhouse Link

June 15, 2021

Sarasota County Schools and the Safe Children Coalition have teamed up to raise awareness about school enrollment options and resources for students and their families that do not have a permanent address or are “doubling up” in residences. The McKinney-Vento Act of 2001 provides services that support the enrollment, attendance and success in school for students in residential transition.

In Sarasota County, these services are provided through the Schoolhouse Link program, a partnership between the Sarasota County School Board and the Safe Children Coalition. To learn more about the Schoolhouse Link program, please visit: https://sccfl.org/schoolhouselink or call 941-923-6100.
