Checklist For Identifying Students Experiencing Homelessness

Subtitle VII-B of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act (Title X, Part C of the No Child Left Behind Act) provides educational rights and services for children and youth experiencing homelessness. The Act requires every school district to designate a homeless liaison.  The liaison’s duties include implementing the McKinney-Vento Act in the district, starting with identifying the children and youth experiencing homelessness.
