COVID-19

Families or students experiencing homelessness due to COVID-19 can obtain information from the Texas Homeless Education Office at http://www.theotx.org/covid-19/.

McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act (federal law) provides assistance to states to help them ensure educational rights and protections for children and youth experiencing homelessness. This program helps State Educational Agencies (SEAs) ensure that homeless children, including preschoolers and youths, have equal access to FAPE, including public preschool education, as provided to other children and youth. 

Homeless Student Enrollment

A school must enroll a student who is in a possible homeless situation. The lack of records or proof of residency must not be a reason for not enrolling the student. A parent/guardian may enroll their student in the school near the place they are currently living. The student may also continue to attend his/her original school. A Student Residency Questionnaire (SRQ) is given to the parent/guardian at the time of registration due to changes in living and financial situations. However,  a parent/guardian or student may also request the SRQ at any time during the school year as living and financial situations change.
