H.R. 3221: Homeless and Foster Youth Achievement Act

Title: Homeless and Foster Youth Achievement Act

Introduced: Jul 27, 2015 (114th Congress)

Sponsor: Rep. Katherine M. Clark [D-MA5]

Status: Referred to Committee - Referred to the House Committee on Education and the Workforce.

Summary: Homeless and Foster Youth Achievement Act This bill amends the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 to require a state to include additional information in its annual state report card.  Under current law, a state must include data regarding student achievement on state academic assessments, both in the aggregate and disaggregated by race, ethnicity, disability status, migrant status, English proficiency, and status as disadvantaged.  For purposes of a state's annual report card, the bill expands those categories to include homeless status and status as a child in foster care. Graduation rates for secondary school students must be reported by the same categories by which student achievement data is reported.
