The NEISD School-Age Parenting Program is committed to encourage NEISD pregnant and parenting students through education and support, to become self-sufficient, responsible, and productive citizens. In addition, the School-Age Parenting Program is designed to help students achieve academically and work toward graduation, to access community resources, assist in career readiness and/or job training, to become knowledgeable in child development and enhance positive parenting skills, and to become productive citizens.

McKinney-Vento Project

The NEISD McKinney-Vento Project is committed to ensuring that all NEISD children and youth in homeless situations have the opportunity to attend, enroll in, and succeed in school. During the 2022-23 school year, the NEISD McKinney-Vento Project identified and provided services for 1,153 students. San Antonio is the ninth largest city in the country with a poverty level that has nearly doubled that of families across the country at 18.7%. Six shelters provide emergency and transitional housing for homeless families. Only one of those transitional shelters resides in the North East ISD attendance area. The average homeless family in San Antonio is made up of 3.29 people, and estimated 249 families are homeless every day in the city, including 520 children.

Family Specialists are located at 61 of the NEISD campuses to provide support and services for all students and their families, creating a true connection between home, school, and community.

Family Engagement creates and sustains partnerships with students, families, and the community to ensure high levels of learning for all.
