The McKinney Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act

The McKinney Vento act is a federal law to ensure school stability for children and youth in transition.  Eligible children and youth are those lacking a fixed, regular, and adequate night time residence.  

If you or your family are eligible, you may qualify for certain rights and protections under the federal McKinney Vento act.

Every school district is required by law to have a McKinney Vento liaison.
