McKinney Vento

The McKinney-Vento Act defines homeless as children lacking a fixed, regular, and adequate residence. If any one of the three conditions is missing, the child is considered homeless.

  • Fixed: Stationary, permanent, not subject to change
  • Regular: Used on a regular (nightly) basis
  • Adequate: Sufficient for meeting both the physical and psychological needs typically met in home environments

 

McKINNEY-VENTO PROTECTION

WHAT TO DO IF YOU QUALIFY FOR McKINNEY-VENTO PROTECTION:
If you qualify for protection under the McKinney-Vento Act, you have access to certain rights and protections. There are several steps you can take to ensure that you are accessing all of the benefits your community may offer.

 

  • Meet Your Liaison 
    By law, every school district and charter school must designate a homeless liaison that can educate and advocate for homeless students. Liaisons’ duties include helping students without homes enroll in school or pre-school, assisting to arrange transportation to school, and mediating disputes.

LIAISONS
“Homeless Liaison” may be in your job description – but do you know what it means?

By law, every local education agency (school district or charter school) must appoint a staff member to act as a liaison for students in homeless situations.  Often this person holds one or more other job titles, including parent or school liaison, migrant or outreach coordinator, counselor, principal, federal programs director, or assistant superintendent. 

Liaisons are responsible for:  Identifying students in homeless situations, enrolling these students in school, and giving them “full and equal opportunity to succeed”. This includes:

  • Ensuring qualified students are also enrolled in other appropriate educational services such as Head Start or pre-school.
  • Referring students to appropriate health services.
  • Keeping parents and guardians informed as to their students’ options and rights.
  • Publicly posting notice of educational rights.
  • Mediating enrollment disputes.
  • Informing about and assisting with transportation arrangements.
  • Helping students obtain immunizations (where needed), and medical records.
  • Informing unaccompanied youth (students without parents or guardians) about enrollment options and assist them in enrolling.
