The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act of 2001 offers educational services for the children of families in transition to permanent housing. As a family experiencing transitional housing, you have the right to:
Do you work in agriculture, live stock, processing of milk (dairy), crops, poultry, or fishing?
Have you moved in the past three years seeking temporary or seasonal employments?
Are you or your children younger than 22 years old? In school grades Kindergarten to twelfth? Have you or your children not obtained a GED?
If you answered yes to all or some of these questions, you and your family may be eligible to receive services of additional education from the Federal Program of Education for the Migrant families.
If you are eligible for one of these services, McKinney Vento Act or Migrant Education Program, or need more information, please contact Mercedes Burkholder at 480-987-5304.
