McKinney-Vento Act:

The McKinney-Vento Education for Homeless Children and Youth program is designed to address the problems that homeless children and youth have faced in enrolling, attending, and succeeding in school. Under this program, State educational agencies must ensure that each homeless child and youth has equal access to the same free, appropriate public education, including a public preschool education, as other children and youth.

If the McKinney-Vento Act applies to your family, the school registrar/school social worker will be able to assist with the registration process.

Welcome to Jackson County. If you have further questions regarding registration, please contact the school the student will be attending.
