McKinney-Vento Act

The Arizona Homeless Education Program is dedicated to ensuring that all children and youth experiencing homelessness have access to the public education to which they are entitled under the federal McKinney-Vento Education of Homeless Children and Youth Assistance Act. Contact Maria Silva for more information.

Title I

Through Title I, QCUSD offers McKinney Vento Services.

Your school-age children may qualify for certain rights and protections if your family lives:

  • In a shelter.
  • In a motel or campground due to the lack of an alternative adequate accommodation.
  • In a car, park, abandoned building, or bus or train station.
  • Doubled up with other people due to loss of housing to economic hardship.

Your eligible children have the right to:

  • Receive a free, appropriate public education.
  • Enroll in school immediately, even if lacking documents normally required for enrollment.
  • Enroll in school and attend classes while the school gathers needed documents.
  • Enroll in the local school. Or continue attending their school of origin, if that is your preference.
  • Receive transportation to and from the school of origin, if requested.
  • Receive educational services comparable to those provided to other students, according to your children’s need.

Visit the NCHE website for additional Title I information.
