McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act
In January of 2002, Congress authorized the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act to help people experiencing homelessness. The federal law includes the Education of Homeless Children and Youth Program that entitles children who lack a fixed, regular and adequate nighttime residence to a free, appropriate education and requires schools to remove barriers to their enrollment, attendance and success in school. The McKinney-Vento Program meets the needs of homeless students attending Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools by addressing academic challenges and family issues affecting their success in school.
If you live in any of the following situations: In a shelter, motel, campground, park, abandoned building, bus or train station or some other inadequate accommodation doubled up with other people due to loo of housing or economic hardship then you may be eligible. You may qualify for certain rights and protections under the federal McKinney-Vento Act. Please reach out to our School Social Worker, Ms. Flowers, to schedule an assessment.
