What is it?
The MV program is for families who are experiencing a loss of housing due to economic hardship. If your family is homeless, or, occupying a temporary or inadequate living situation (shelter/unsheltered, doubled-up, hotels/motels, etc) due to a loss of housing, your child might be eligible for certain educational rights and services. Families who qualify for McKinney-Vento services are eligible to receive assistance with transportation, free/reduced lunches, clothing, medical, etc.
Please see the document below for more details.
If you believe your family qualifies for McKinney-Vento services, please contact your school counselor or McKinney-Vento liaison Lisa Avila.
