Homeless Information


Is your family experiencing a housing transition?

Your school-age children may qualify for certain rights and protections under the 

McKinney-Vento Education of Homeless Children and Youth Assistance Act. 


These rights and protections include:

* Enrolling immediately in school, even if lacking documents normally required for enrollment

* Attending your school of origin

* Receiving transportation to and from the school of origin free of charge if requested by your family

* Receiving free and appropriate education services 

School or origin refers to: The last school enrolled or last school district where your student was permanently housed


The McKinney-Vento Act defines Homeless children as: 

"individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence" 

Examples Include:

* Doubled up with other people due to loss of housing, economic hardship or similar reasons 

* Living in a motel, hotel or campground due to lack of adequate alternative accommodation

* Living in an emergency or transitional shelter

* Living in cars, parks, bus station or public spaces
