Training Overview

This semester, help your homeless students catch up. Learn how to comply with the McKinney-Vento Act.

The first semester of this school year has been even rougher than usual for homeless students. After over a year of facing barriers to participating in remote learning, they return to classrooms with a dramatic learning loss and lack interpersonal connections.

Forty percent of America’s homeless population is under the age of 18. This translates into 1.3 million students. The McKinney-Vento Act solidifies their right to an education and requires that they benefit from enrollment, participation, and stability. You need to know the law to ensure your school complies and helps these students rebound during the new semester.
