Homeless Students
Homeless Students Image Students who are living in a homeless shelter or other temporary housing, as well as students removed from their parents and awaiting foster care placement, have certain rights under a federal statute, the McKinney-Vento Act, including the right to remain in the school they were attending before they became homeless and the right to transportation. For more information, including on whether or not McKinney-Vento applies to a specific student, consult the New York State Technical and Education Assistance Center for Homeless Students (NYS-TEACHS).

Each NYC school district (including Districts 75 and 79) has Students in Temporary Housing Content Expert, also sometimes referred to as a McKinney-Vento Liaison, who is responsible for ensuring that eligible students receive what they are entitled to under the law.
