Homeless Information

 

 

 

 

Is your family experiencing a housing transition 

due to loss of housing or economic hardship?

Your school-age children may qualify for certain rights and protections under the 

McKinney-Vento Education of Homeless Children and Youth Assistance Act. 

 

These rights and protections include:

* Enrolling immediately in school, even if lacking documents normally required for enrollment

* Attending your school of origin (the school your child went to while permanently housed) 

* Receiving transportation to and from the school of origin free of charge if requested by your family

* Receiving free and appropriate education services 

 

The McKinney-Vento Act defines Homeless children as: 

"individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence" 

Examples Include:

* Doubled up with other people due to economic hardship or loss of housing 

* Living in a motel, hotel or campground due to lack of adequate alternative accommodation

* Living in a shelter

* Living in cars, parks, bus station or public spaces

 
If you believe you, or your child, may be eligible 
please contact Crystal Kombol, Conway McKinney-Vento Liaison 
360-445-5785 x2214
 
 
If you feel the district's McKinney-Vento Liaison made an incorrect determination
 in regards to McKinney-Vento eligibility or school or origin, 
please utilize the McKinney-Vento Dispute Resolution process.
