Even if you have:
  • Uncertain Housing
  • A temporary address
  • No permanent physical address
You are guaranteed enrollment in school by the federal McKinney-Vento Act and California state law if you live:
  • In a house or apartment with more than one family due to loss of housing or economic hardship
  • With friends or family because you are a runaway or an unaccompanied youth
  • In substandard housing (without electricity, water, or heat)
  • In a shelter (family, domestic violence, or youth shelter, or transitional living program)
  • In a motel, hotel, or weekly rate housing
  • In an abandoned building, in a car, at a campground, or on the streets.
You can enroll in school immediately even without the documents normally required for enrollment, such as:
  • Proof of residency
  • Immunization records or other required health records
  • School records
  • Legal guardianship papers
Your child may:
  • Participate fully in all school activities and programs for which he/she is eligible
  • Receive transportation to and from the school of origin if you request it
  • Continue to attend the school in which he/she was last enrolled even if you have moved away from that school's attendance area.
  • Qualify automatically for school nutrition programs
Your responsibilities are to:
  • Make sure your child gets to school on time and ready to learn
  • Stay informed of school rules, regulations, and activities
  • Contact the homeless liaison for assistance in removing barriers to your child's education
  • Attend parent/teacher conferences, Back-to-School Nights, and other school-related activities.
