McKinney Vento Act

 The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act ensures educational rights and   protections   for children and youth experiencing homelessness. The homeless   liaison is crucial in ensuring     the rights   and services of students experiencing   homelessness. VUSD provides services and   support for students experiencing   homelessness, including unaccompanied youth through   the McKinney-Vento     program.  If you are a student living alone or with an adult other than your   legal   parent/guardian (unaccompanied youth), we can provide you with options to declare independent status or for a caregiver affidavit, as well as connect you with support and services.
