Navigating Being Unhoused

Students who live in temporary housing due to economic or other hardship have additional education rights under the McKinney-Vento Act (MVA). McKinney-Vento – National Center for Homeless Education 

The MVA ensures that children and youth are provided a free, appropriate public education, despite the lack of a fixed place of residence. Youth who are not living with a parent or legal guardian, including runaways, may also qualify for these services. 

If you are currently unhoused or your housing is in jeopardy, contact Stacey Whaley at 541-933-2512 ext 1101 to get support for your student and family.

Examples of Temporary Housing

  • Temporarily staying with friends or family

  • Living in a motel or shelter

  • Living in a camper, RV or car

  • Couch surfing

  • Unhoused

  • Staying in a structure not designed for long-term residency like a tent

What are your rights?

Student Rights under MVA include:

  • Staying in school of origin for duration of homelessness or through the end of the school year during which you move into permanent housing

  • Immediate enrollment in the neighborhood school where they are currently staying, even if lacking proof of residency, guardian signature, immunizations, or other relevant documents

  • Assistance with transportation to school

  • Free breakfast and lunch

  • Full participation in all education programs for which they are otherwise eligible
