McKinney-Vento Act

McKinney-Vento Act
Supports for Students Experiencing Homelessness

The McKinney-Vento Act is a federal law in the United States that addressed the rights and protections of individuals and youth experiencing homelessness in the public education system. Under this program, schools must ensure each student experiencing homelessness has equal access to the same free, appropriate public education as other children and youth. The McKinney-Vento Act plays a crucial role to ensure educational stability and reduce barriers for students experiencing homelessness.
