MCKINNEY-VENTO HOMELESS ASSISTANCE ACT
Title IX, Part A of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) reauthorized the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act in December 2015. This federal legislation has supported homeless youth for the past thirty years by promoting educational success for students who are experiencing homelessness.
During online registration, parents are asked specific questions to determine the extent to which their living arrangement is fixed, regular, and adequate. Additionally, students in Carter County Schools are identified by the Attendance Clerk/Secretary upon enrollment or through home visits and referrals by the Family Resource/Youth Service Center Coordinators and the Director of Pupil Personnel.
