Texas Education for Homeless Children and Youth (TEHCY) Program

 All Texas public schools, charter schools, and education services centers, collectively known as local education agencies (LEAs), must follow federal rules concerning the education of homeless students. These requirement are detailed in the McKinney-Vento Act, all LEAs. 

Homeless Education Liaisons

Every Local Education Agency must designate an appropriate staff person as a local homeless education liaison and submit that person's name to the Texas Education Agency (TEA). This information is to be submitted to the AskTED online directory by the LEA's AskTED administrator. AskTED is TEA's online Texas Education Directory (TED). AskTED is the database where homeless education liaison's contact information is maintained.

The Texas Education for Homeless Children and Youth (TEHCY) Liaison Directory has been imported into the AskTED directory. Your AskTED administrator does not have to resubmit the LEA's homeless education liaison's information if they were previously listed in the TEHCY directory. If you discover information that is out of date or incorrect, updates and/or changes regarding the homeless education liaison's contact information must be submitted to TEA through each LEA's AskTED administrator.

The information in the TEHCY website directory is updated periodically from the AskTED directory. LEAs are no longer required to input this information directly to the TEHCY directory.

To learn how to use AskTED access homeless education liaison contact information directly, download the PDF instructions.
