McKinney-Vento Homeless Program

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act is the federal law that governs the educational rights of children and youth in homeless situations. This act was reauthorized in 2001 as Title X Part C, No Child Left Behind Act

 

Homeless children have the right to a free, appropriate public education

 

 A student is homeless if they:

 

  • live in a shelter or transitional housing
  • live in a motel, campground, car, abandoned building or on the streets
  • share the housing of friends or relatives due to loss of housing (eviction and foreclosure) or cannot afford housing
  • live on the streets
  • have a temporary foster care placement

  Students who are homeless have the right to:

 

  • immediately enroll in and attend school without having health or school records and a permanent address
  • enroll in the school where you are living or the school attended when permanently housed, if in your child's best interest
  • receive transportation to and from the school of origin
  • participate in school activities for which they are eligible
  • utilize dispute resolution process if you have a grievance
