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.
Notice of Rights Reference Sheet
The information provided in the housing questionnaire will help VUSD determine what services you (if unaccompanied youth) or your child may be eligible to receive. This could include additional educational services through Title I, Part A and/or the federal McKinney-Vento Assistance Act.
