Egyptian CUSD#5 is committed to creating equal educational opportunities for all children. The district strives to ensure that homeless children and youth have access to a free, appropriate public education that is comparable to that provided to the children of any Illinois resident and consistent with Illinois' mandatory school attendance laws.
All children and youth experiencing homelessness will be immediately enrolled in school based on availability and will have educational opportunities equal to those of their non-homeless peers. McKinney-Vento students will not be stigmatized or segregated on the basis of their status as homeless.
