Homeless Students

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act

The Act is a federal law that governs educational rights of children and youth in homeless situations.  According to the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, a homeless person is an individual, including children and youth, who lacks a fixed, regular and adequate nighttime residence.

What are Their Rights

The McKinney-Vento (MV) Homeless Assistance Act requires that district's Board of Education provide a fair, equitable, and high-quality education for all students, and to close educational achievement gaps.   The McKinney-Vento Act mandates they have full and equal opportunity to succeed and gives them the LEGAL right to:

Enroll in school immediately, even if lacking documents normally required for enrollment.
Enroll in the local school, or continue attending their school of origin (the school they last attended when permanently housed or the school in which they were last enrolled), whichever is in the student's best interest.
Receive transportation to and from their school of origin if requested.
Remain in their school of origin for as long as they are still homeless or for the remainder of the school year if they find residency outside of the district.
Participate in the same activities and programs offered to other children including free and reduced school nutrition and Head Start programs, as well as appropriate special education and Title I programs.
