Homeless Student Education

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act is TItle X, Part C of the No Child Left Behind Act. This legislation ensures that children and youth experiencing homelessness have full and equal access to an appropriate public education and that they experience success in school.

You are guaranteed enrollment in school by the federal McKinney-Vento Act and California state law if you live:

  • In a shelter (family, youth or domestic violence shelter; or transitional living program)
  • In a motel, hotel, or weekly rate housing
  • In a house or apartment with more than one family because of economic hardship or loss
  • In an abandoned building, in a car, at a campground, or on the street
  • In substandard housing (without electricity, water, or heat)
  • With friends or family because you are a runaway or an unaccompanied youth

 If you live under any of these conditions, you may enroll or attend school even if you lack:

  • School Records
  • Legal guardianship papers
  • A permanent residence
  • Immunization records or tuberculosis skin-test results 

You may:

  • Participate fully in all school activities and programs for which you are able
  • Continue to attend the school in which you were last enrolled
  • Receive transportation back to your school of origin
  • Qualify for child nutrition programs

 For questions or assistance with enrollment, please contact your school office or the District Homeless Liaison at (949) 234-9297.
