Students in Transition

Students in Transition

If your family lives in any of the following situations, your school-age children may qualify for certain rights and protections under the federal McKinney-Vento Act through our "Students in Transition" program.

  • In a motel or campground due to the lack of an alternative adequate accommodation

  • In a shelter

  • In a car, park abandoned building, or bus or train station

  • Doubled up with other people due to loss of housing or economic hardship

Your eligible children have the right to:

  • Receive a free, appropriate public education        

  • Enroll in school immediately, even if lacking documents normally required for enrollment

  • Enroll in school and attend classes while the school gathers needed documents

  • Enroll in the local school; or continue attending their school of origin (the school they attended when permanently housed or the school in which they were last enrolled), if that is your preference and is feasible.

  • If the school district believes that the school you select is not in the best interest of your children, then the district must provide you with a written explanation of its position and inform you of your right to appeal its decision.

  • Receive transportation to and from the school of origin, if you request this.

  • Receive educational services comparable to those provided to other students, according to your children's needs.
