The McKinney-Vento Act is a federal law that ensures that children and youth who do not have permanent housing can go to school and preschool. It gives children and youth rights to enroll in school, stay in school, get transportation to school, and do well in school. It also includes assistance through the school, such as free/reduced lunch and other services.
