McKinney-Vento: Education for Homeless Youth
The McKinney-Vento Act is a federal law that makes sure children and youth who do not have permanent housing can go to school and preschool. It gives children and youth rights to enroll in school, stay in school, get transportation to school, and do well in school.
If you need help enrolling your children or yourself in school, there are people who can help you. You can contact:
