B-2 Rights and Services for Homeless Migrant Students

Due to the high mobility and poverty experienced by many migrant families, some migrant students may be considered homeless under the McKinney-Vento Act (Title X, Part C of NCLB). Participants will learn about McKinney-Vento eligibility criteria and services available to qualified students. Provisions for homeless students contained in other federal laws, including IDEA, Title IA, and the College Cost Reduction and Access Act also will be discussed. Participants will learn about:
  • Definition of homeless
  • McKinney-Vento rights and services
  • Similarities and differences between the homeless and migrant education programs
  • Suggestions for collaboration between homeless and migrant education programs
