    The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act

    The education provisions of the McKinney-Vento Act, ensure educational rights and protections for children and youth experiencing homelessness. In addition, the law directly applies to homeless unaccompanied youth who also receive special attention within the Act.

    Unaccompanied Youth

    Unaccompanied youth include young people who have run away from home, been thrown out of their homes, or have been abandoned by parents. These young people are separated from their parents for a variety of reasons. Unaccompanied youth have the same rights as other students experiencing homelessness to enroll in, attend, and succeed in public school.
