McKinney-Vento CARE Program
Serving our District's homeless students, unaccompanied youth and their families by ensuring school stability and providing support services for academic success.
What homeless children need most of all is a home…but while they are experiencing homelessness, what they need most is to remain in school. School is one of the few stable, secure places in the lives of homeless children and youth–a place where they can acquire the skills they need to help them escape poverty.
Students are considered homeless or in transition if they lack a fixed, regular and adequate nighttime residence under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act reauthorized by Title IX, Part A of the Ever Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
Your child's rights include:
- Immediate enrollment, even if the family lacks the records normally required for enrollment
- Placement in the student's school of origin, unless this is against the family's wishes
- Transportation to and from the student's school of origin
- Free school meals
