McKinney-Vento (Homeless) Program

The district will work with students and their families  to provide stability in school attendance and other services under the McKinney-Vento Act.  Whenever possible, students may remain in the school which they attended before becoming homeless.  Homeless students  are defined as lacking a fixed, regular and adequate nighttime residence. More information available under Parent Resources section in Family and Counseling Services.  
 

Examples include:

  • children and youth sharing housing due to economic hardship
  • children and youth living in hotels, trailer parks, campgrounds, etc... due to lack of alternative accommodations
  • children and youth living in transitional shelters
  • children and youth awaiting foster care placement
  • children and youth whose primary residence is not traditionally used for sleeping (e.g. park bench, etc...)
  • children and youth living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, bus, train, etc...
  • migratory children and youth living in any of the above situations

 

These students are eligible for assistance such as school supplies and free breakfast and lunch programs.
