McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act

  • The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act ensures that children and youth experiencing homelessness have full and equal access to an appropriate public education. The federal education definition of homelessness based on the McKinney-Vento Act defines homeless children and youth as individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence. This definition also includes:
    • Children and youth who are sharing the housing of other persons due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason

    • Children and youth who may be living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, camping grounds, or shelters

    • Children and youth who have a primary nighttime residence that is a public or private place not designed for or ordinarily used as regular sleeping accommodation for human beings

    • Children and youth who are living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, bus or train stations, or similar settings, and

    • Migratory children who qualify as homeless because they are children who are living in similar circumstances listed above

    Your child or children may have the right to:

    • Immediate enrollment in the school they last attended (school of origin) or the local school where you are currently staying, even if you do not have all the documents normally required at the time of enrollment.
    • Continue to attend their school of origin, if requested by you, and is in the best interest.
    • Receive transportation to and from their school of origin the same special programs and services, if needed, as provided for all other children, including free meals and Title I.
    • Receive the full protection and services provided under all federal and state laws, as it relates to displaced children, youth, and their families.

    La Ley de Asistencia para la Educación de Personas sin Hogar de McKinney-Vento garantiza que los niños y jóvenes sin hogar tengan acceso pleno y equitativo a una educación pública adecuada.

    • Niños y jóvenes que pueden estar viviendo en moteles, hoteles, parques de casas rodantes, campamentos o refugios
    • Niños y jóvenes que tienen una residencia nocturna principal que es un lugar público o privado que no está diseñado ni se usa normalmente como alojamiento habitual para dormir para seres humanos
    • Niños y jóvenes que viven en automóviles, parques, espacios públicos, edificios abandonados, viviendas precarias, estaciones de autobús o tren o entornos similares, y
    • Niños migratorios que califican como personas sin hogar porque son niños que viven en circunstancias similares a las enumeradas anteriormente

    Su hijo o hijos pueden tener derecho a:

    • Matrícula inmediata en la última escuela a la que asistió (escuela de origen) o en la escuela local donde se encuentra actualmente, incluso si no tiene todos los documentos normalmente requeridos en el momento de la inscripción.
    • Continuar asistiendo a su escuela de origen, si usted lo solicita, y es en el mejor interés.
      Recibir transporte hacia y desde su escuela de origen, los mismos programas y servicios especiales, si es necesario, que se brindan a todos los demás niños, incluidas las comidas gratuitas y el Título I.
    • Recibir la protección y los servicios completos proporcionados por todas las leyes federales y estatales, en lo que se refiere a los niños, jóvenes y sus familias desplazados.
