The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Acts is
a federal law that ensures immediate enrollment and educational stability for
homeless children and youth. McKinney-Vento provides federal funding to states
for the purpose of supporting district programs that serve homeless students.
Under McKinney-Vento and state law, students are considered homeless if they
lack a nighttime residence that is fixed, regular, and adequate. To help determine
if a student is eligible, the school district asks two questions when a student
1) Is your current address a temporary living
2) Is this temporary living arrangement due to loss of
housing or economic hardship?
