What is McKinney- Vento?

  • The McKinney-Vento Children and Youth Homeless Education Program implemented in Montgomery Public Schools is designed to provide services to homeless children and youth ensuring that they have the same opportunity as non-homeless children to meet with school success. The program addresses concerns that homeless students may face in enrolling, attending, and succeeding in school. The target population for this program fall into several categories: (1) doubled-up families which includes children and youth who are sharing the housing of other persons due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason; (2) runaway, abused, neglected or ungovernable adolescents at safe place shelters; (3) children and their mothers who reside in domestic abuse shelters and transitional housing; (4) families residing in the emergency shelters, hotels, or other temporary arrangements; (5) pregnant teen or young mothers and their babies in shelters due to their problematic situations; (6)  unaccompanied youth. In meeting the needs of these identified groups, students are provided academic services; and (7) migratory children who qualify as homeless. Montgomery Public Schools strives to make a positive difference in the lives of homeless students.
