McKinney-Vento: Educating Children and Youth

Our goal is to improve educational outcomes for McKinney-Vento youth through educational support. In addition, we want to make sure that every McKinney-Vento youth in Corcoran Unified receives the support and services needed for educational success.

Homeless Legislation

Current legislation provides information and resources for homeless children and youth and their right to enroll, attend, participate fully, and succeed in school.

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act (McKinney-Vento Act) (42 U.S.C. § 11431-11435) is federal legislation that ensures the educational rights and protections of children and youths experiencing homelessness. It requires all local educational agencies (LEAs) to ensure that homeless students have access to the same free, appropriate public education, including public preschools, as provided to other children and youths. The McKinney-Vento Act defines LEAs as public school districts, direct-funded and locally funded charter schools, and county offices of education. The McKinney-Vento Act also authorizes the funding for the federal Education for Homeless Children and Youth Program.

Please review the McKinney-Vento Act's definition of homeless children and youth.
