McKinney-Vento Resources

Last Updated: 2/24/2021 6:22 PM

HOMELESSNESS

(The federal McKinney-Vento Act)

 

If you (student) or your family lives in any of the following situations:

  • In a shelter
  • In a car, park abandoned building, bus or train station
  • Doubled up with other people due to loss of housing or economic hardship
  • Link: Student Housing Questionnaire

You (student) or other school-age children may qualify for certain rights and protections under the federal McKinney-Vento Act.

Eligible students have a 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 their preference and is feasible.
    • If the school district believes that the school selected is not in his/her best interest, then the district must provide the student with a written explanation of its position and inform the student of his/her right to appeal its decision.
  • Receive transportation to and from the school of origin, if requested.
  • Receive educational services comparable to those provided to other students, according to the students’ needs.

If you believe you may be eligible, contact the Chimacum Special Services office at 360.302.5885 or visit us on the main campus at 91 West Valley Rd., Chimacum to find out what services and supports may be available.
