Language and Cultural Equity Department

The APS Language and Cultural Equity Department was recognized for their support of the McKinney Vento Program.

• The Language and Cultural Equity Department is proud to partner with the APS McKinney Vento Program.
• The McKinney-Vento Act provides protections to unhoused children.
• Unhoused children are considered "individuals who lack a fixed, regular and adequate nighttime residence."
• The partnership with APS Title I is intended to help support and give back to our students most in need - those receiving transitional services and those who don't have a place to call "home" every night at this stage in their lives.
• During the toiletry drive for McKinney Vento students and families last fall, the Language and Cultural Equity Department collected 316 hygiene products!
• Thank you to the Language and Cultural Equity Department for its strong support of another department's efforts.
