• McKinney-Vento Rights for Students

    Students who are experiencing homelessness have the right to…

    • enroll in their school of origin (school of attendance when student became homeless), OR enroll in the school that is zoned for the area where they currently live. (NOTE: McKinney-Vento students do not have the option to choose any school in the District.)
    • enroll immediately and attend school, even if the student does not have the usual documents necessary for enrollment, including proof of residence or proof of guardian. (NOTE: Schools MUST permit homeless students to enroll without documents.)
