• Students Who Live In Temporary Housing

    The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act is a federal law that discusses the public education of children and youth in temporary housing. Under McKinney-Vento and state law, students are considered to be in temporary housing if their nighttime residence is not fixed, regular, and adequate. Some examples of temporary housing include:

     

    • Sharing the housing of others due to loss of housing, economic hardship or other similar reason
    • In a motel, hotel, trailer park, or camping grounds due to lack of other housing;
    • In a car, park, public space, abandoned building, or bus/train station; or
    • Living in emergency or transitional shelters
    • Abandoned in hospitals
    • Living in public or private place not designed for sleeping
    • Migratory living in circumstances described above
