McKinney Vento Program

McKinney Vento Program

If your family lacks a fixed, regular and adequate nighttime residence and is forced to live in any of the following situations:

  • Sharing the housing of other persons due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason (example: evicted from home, etc.).
  • In a motel.
  • In an emergency or transitional shelter.
  • Have a primary nighttime residence that is not designed for or ordinarily used as a regular sleeping accommodation for humans ( car, park, or campsite)

Then your children may have the right to:

  • Enroll in school without proof of residency, immunization, school records, or other documents.
  • Choose between their school of origin or the school zoned for where you are currently living, when feasible.
  • Receive transportation to school.
  • Attend school and participate in school programs with children who are not homeless. Children cannot be separated from the regular school program because they are homeless.
  • Receive all the school services available to other students.

For more information you may contact your school administration or Chip Davis at 229-248-2835.
