Reauthorized in 2002 as Title X, Part C, of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 2001

A Brief History of the McKinney-Vento Act


Rights of Eligible Children and Youth

  • Right to immediate enrollment even when records not present
  • Right to remain in the school of origin, if in the student’s best interest
  • Right to receive transportation to the school of origin
  • Support for academic success

Funding History

Total Annual Idaho Allocation

Funding for States and School Districts

The U.S. Department of Education allocates McKinney-Vento funding annually to states based on the state’s proportion of the Title I, Part A federal allocation. States must subgrant funds competitively to school districts within the state to be used for program implementation at the local level.

  • States must distribute no less that 75% of its annual McKinney-Vento allocation to local school districts in subgrants; a few minimally funded states can reserve up to 50% of their allocation.
  • Subgrants are awarded competitively based on need and quality of the application.

  • Standard 7: All preschool-aged homeless children enroll in and attend preschool programs.
  • Standard 8: All homeless unaccompanied youth enroll in and attend school.

  • Standard 9: All parents (or persons acting as parents) of homeless children and youth are informed of the educational and related opportunities available to their children and are provided meaningful opportunities to participate in their children’s education.
  • Standard 10: LEAs help with the needs of all homeless children and youth through collaborative efforts both within and beyond the LEA.

*Although the term “homeless students” is used, it is understood that homelessness is a temporary experience of residential loss or instability, and that the term “homeless” is not a permanent or definitional label. The term “homeless students” more accurately refers to “children and youth experiencing homelessness.”
