The McKinney Vento Act is a federal law that provides services to children who lack a fixed, regular and adequate nighttime residence. Examples of this could be:
you are staying in a shelter or FEMA trailer; sharing the housing of others due to loss of housing or economic hardship; living in a car, park, campground, or other inadequate accommodations; temporarily living in a motel or hotel due to loss of housing or economic hardship; and/or living alone as a minor student without an adult (unaccompanied youth).
If eligible, your children have a right to receive a free, appropriate public education; enroll in school immediately, even if lacking documents normally required for enrollment; enroll in a local school or continue attending your school of origin; receive transportation to and from the school of origin if you request this; and receive educational services comparable to those provided to other students, in accordance with your child's needs.
