McKinney Vento Homeless Act
The McKinney-Vento Education of Homeless Children and Youth Assistance Act is a federal law that ensures immediate enrollment and educational stability for homeless children and youth. McKinney-Vento provides federal funding to states for the purpose of supporting district programs that serve homeless students.
Defining Homeless: The McKinney-Vento Act defines homeless children as “individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence.”
The act provides examples of children who would fall under this definition:
*Children and youth sharing housing due to loss of housing, economic hardship or a similar reason
*Children and youth living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, or camp grounds due to lack of alternative
*Children and youth living in emergency or transitional shelters
*Children and youth abandoned in hospitals
*Children and youth awaiting foster care placement
*Children and youth whose primary nighttime residence is not ordinarily used as a regular sleeping
accommodation (e.g. park benches, etc)
*Children and youth living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, bus
or train stations
*Migratory children and youth living in any of the above situations
If you fit this criteria while enrolled in JYK Discovery Charter School, please contact our School Counselor and Community Liason, Ms. Blake at 215-879-8182 (ext 215).
