Enrollment of Homeless Student Guide
What is it?
To comply with McKinney-Vento regulations, school office managers should ensure that their student information system includes a designated field to identify homeless students. This field should include information such as the student's living situation, contact information for their caregiver or guardian, and any necessary transportation information. Additionally, the information collected in the student information system should be kept confidential and only shared with authorized personnel who need the information to support the student's education. Compliance with this act involves identifying and supporting homeless students and ensuring their access to education. By updating your student information system, you can help ensure that all students have access to the education they need to succeed.
