The McKinney-Vento Assistance / Title X
The McKinney-Vento Assistance provides rights and services to children and youth in transition.
School-age children may qualify for certain rights and protections under the federal McKinney-Vento Assistance if your family lives in any of the following situations:
- Sharing the housing of friends or family due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason
- Staying in motels, trailer parks, or camp grounds due to the lack of an adequate alternative
- Staying in shelters or transitional housing
- Sleeping in cars, parks, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, or similar settings.
What rights do students in transition have:
- Immediate enrollment in school, even if required documents are missing
- Enroll in local school or continue in the school of origin for the school year.
- Receive transportation to and from the school of origin, if requested.
- If the school district believes the school you select is not in the best interest of your student, then the district must provide you with a written explanation of its position and inform you of your right to appear.
- The right to fully participate in school and extracurricular school activities
