Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I get help? Every school district must have a McKinney-Vento Liaison to help students in temporary housing.
Can a student enroll themselves in school? Yes, if the youth is living in temporary housing and not with their parents or legal guardians (known as unaccompanied youth) they can enroll themselves in school.
Can students still attend a school and participate in school programs with children who are not homeless? Yes, children cannot be separated from the regular school program because they are homeless.
What should I do if I move? You will need to contact the school district's local liaison for homeless education for help in enrolling your child in a new school. Contact the school and provide any information you think will assist the teachers in helping your child adjust to new circumstances.
