The McKinney-Vento Act requires school districts to appoint a District Liaison to ensure homeless students are identified, enrolled, and connected with appropriate services. This position is essential to a district’s compliance with federal and state law. The local liaison has proven to be the key to the effective implementation of the Act.

School districts are legally required to post information where parents may see it about the rights of homeless students. Posters that will satisfy this statutory requirement are available in both English and Spanish and can be obtained by contacting the McKinney-Vento Student Advocate, Heather Britton.
