The Law

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act is the federal law that governs the educational rights of children and youth in homeless situations. This act was reauthorized under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) in 2015. 

For additional information on the educational rights of homeless children and youth, you may visit these recommended sites: The McKinney Vento Homeless Assistance Act www.naehcy.org

Students' Rights 

Taylor County Public Schools shall provide an educational environment that treats all students with dignity and respect. Every homeless student shall have equal access to the same free and appropriate educational opportunities as students who are not homeless. This commitment to the educational rights of homeless children and youth applies to all services, programs, and activities provided or made available by the Taylor County School district.
