Through the McKinney-Vento Act, children who are homeless have certain rights and protections to enable them to continue with their education while homeless. To identify and address the needs of students experiencing homelessness more effectively, both the McKinney-Vento Act and Title I, Part A work together to best meet student needs. If your family lives in any of the following situations, you may qualify for rights provided by McKinney-Vento:

  • In a shelter, motel, vehicle or campground
  • On the street
  • In an abandoned building, trailer, or other inadequate accommodations
  • Doubled up with friends or relatives because you cannot find or afford housing
