The McKinney-Vento Act is a federal law guaranteeing all children and youth the right to an equal education, regardless of their living situation. Protection under the McKinney-Vento Act extends to those who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence.
Those covered by the law have the right to:
- Expedited enrollment in the appropriate school
- Receive free/reduced lunch
- Attend their school of origin (including the necessary transportation)
- Receive support from their district’s McKinney-Vento Liaison
