ARE YOU STAYING IN TEMPORARY HOUSING?
DO YOU WANT YOUR CHILDREN TO STAY AT THEIR CURRENT SCHOOL?
ARE YOU HAVING TROUBLE ENROLLING YOUR CHILDREN IN SCHOOL, OR GETTING THEM THERE?
If you are staying temporarily with someone else because you lost your housing, or staying in a motel, campground, shelter, or in outside or inadequate place, you and your children have special rights at school.
Those rights include:
Staying in the same school even if you move, and receiving transportation to that school, as long as it is in the student’s best interest
Enrolling in school immediately without the documents schools usually require
Receiving free school meals
Getting help with school supplies and other needs
Extra support for youth who are on their own
Help connecting young children with early childhood services
Contact your school district’s McKinney-Vento Liaison to find out if you qualify for help. Denise DeBarros – email@example.com
