Children and Youth Experiencing Homelessness Have the Right to a Free, Appropriate Public Education
Our district is guided by the McKinney-Vento Act. This law provides homeless and highly mobile students with certain rights so they have access to opportunities that will help them meet the same high academic standards expected of all students in our district.

Homeless Students live in any of these conditions:
  • In a shelter (family, individual, domestic violence, youth, temporary housing)
  • In a motel or hotel
  • Doubled up with others because of lack of housing or economic hardship
  • Temporary foster care or awaiting foster care
  • On the street
  • In a car, park, abandoned building, or other place not designed for human habitation
The McKinney-Vento Federal Act ensures Homeless Students
have the rights to:

  • Immediate enrollment to school
  • Continue in the school they attended before they became homeless
  • Transportation to their school of origin, if feasible
  • Access to school support staff services
  • Title I services
  • Free school meals
  • Dispute school placements that differ from parent or student request
