The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act ensures that children who are considered homeless or in-transition have the same educational rights and protection as any other school children. 

You or your child is considered homeless or in-transition if you do not live in a fixed, regular and adequate night-time residence, including:

  • Shared housing due to loss of housing
  • Living in cars, parks, sub-standard housing, hotels or motels
  • Primary night-time residence is a public or private place not designed for regular sleeping
  • Students awaiting foster care placement
  • Migratory children living in the above circumstances
