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
