Access to Education for Homeless Students and Students Living in Temporary Housing

This bilingual brochure explains the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, which is a federal law that requires school districts to provide an education to homeless students.

This law protects students rights to enroll in school or continue attending school despite lacking necessary documents, and to transfer and be transported to a school that is convenient to them. This brochure also explains how families can seek legal help if a child's school is not fulfilling these obligations.
