The McKinney-Vento Act and School Fees

State and local educational agencies (SEAs and LEAs) must develop, “review and revise, policies to
remove barriers to the identification of homeless children and youths, and the enrollment and
retention of homeless children and youths in schools in the State, including barriers to enrollment and
retention due to outstanding fees or fines, or absences.” 42 USC §11432(g)(1)(I)

This document is designed to help LEAs implement this provision.
