Project Teach Helps Ensure Student Success

Project Teach promotes the educational success of children experiencing homelessness. The program:

  • informs parents and the community of the education rights of children under the definition of homeless
  • collaborates with school districts, shelters, and agencies
  • connect children, youth, and their families staying in and/or attending school in Sacramento County to local education liaisons
  • coordinates opportunities for agency collaboration
  • provides professional development and referral to community resources
  • supports school of origin, transportation, and connection to early childhood education programs

Is your child missing school because…

  • you move a lot?
  • you live in a shelter or motel?
  • you are on the street or homeless?
  • you don't have a permanent address?

Project Teach, a program at the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE), can help! Free help to keep your child in school, plus connection to transportation assistance, school supplies, and more.
