Homeless Students Enrollment Rights And Services

  • McKinney Vento Act - To the extent practical and as required by law, the district will work with homeless students and their families to provide stability in school attendance and other services. Special attention will be given to ensuring the enrollment and attendance of homeless students not currently attending school. Homeless students will be provided district services for which they are eligible, including Head Start and comparable preschool programs, Title I, similar state programs, special education, bilingual education, vocational and technical education programs, gifted and talented programs and school nutrition programs. This applies to children and youth age 21 and under, consistent with their eligibility for public education services under state and federal law, specifically, until high school graduation or equivalent, or until age 21. For special education students, federal law provides the right to access services until age 22. 20 U.S.C. §1412(a)(1)(A).
