McKinney Vento Act

 
The McKinney Vento Act of 1987, or P.L. 100-77, ensures that each child of a homeless individual, and each homeless youth shall have equal access to the same free, appropriate public education as provided to other children and youth. Under the Act, schools are prohibited from delaying a homeless child’s entry into school due to delays in obtaining school records.

Rules regarding guardianship must be waived for homeless students living with foster Learning Coaches or relatives other than their Parent/Legal Guardians.
Insight School of Oklahoma can offer school supplies to qualifying homeless youth. Determinations of qualifying students are made on a case-by-case basis. If you feel you may be eligible for services, please contact the homeless liaison, Brittany Eck, LCSW, at beck@insightok.org or (405) 835-2133 x3183.
