McKinney-Vento Students In Transition
Wellpinit School District does not segregate, separate, or stigmatize homeless students. Homeless students are fully integrated and not segregated/separated from their housed peers for academic instruction.
The McKinney-Vento Program:
The McKinney-Vento Act provides rights and services to children and youth experiencing homelessness, which includes those who are:
sharing the housing of others due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason;
staying in motels, trailer parks, or camp grounds due to the lack of an adequate alternative;
staying in shelters or transitional housing;
or sleeping in cars, parks, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, or similar settings.
How to Contact your McKinney-Vento Liaison
Under the McKinney-Vento Act, every local educational agency is required to designate a liaison for homeless children and youth.
