Office of McKinney-Vento
SCPS Office of McKinney-Vento was established to ensure that students that are experiencing homelessness are identified, enrolled in school and receive equitable access to education.
If the residence is not fixed, regular and or adequate, it is considered a homeless situation.
The Federal McKinney-Vento Act guarantees immediate school enrollment for anyone who, due to a lack of permanent housing, lives in inadequate or temporary setting such as:
- Emergency shelters or transitional housing
- Motels, hotels, or campgrounds due to lack of an adequate alternative
- Cars, parks, public places, bus or train stations, or abandoned buildings
- Doubled up with relatives or friends due to loss of housing or economic hardship
