The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Improvements Act of 2001 (McKinney-Vento Act) affords a student experiencing homelessness the choice between two campuses where he or she can attend school, and a determination must be made as to which campus the student will attend. A child or youth experiencing homelessness can either continue in their school of origin or they can enroll in the school of the attendance zone where they are actually living while homeless.
