Homeless & McKinney-Vento Services

McKinney-Vento Program

The McKinney-Vento Act’s Education of Homeless Children and Youth Program, ensures that homeless children and youth are provided a free, appropriate public education, despite lack of a fixed place of residence or a supervising parent or guardian. The state public school admission statute assuring the right of homeless and other children and youth in similar circumstances to enroll in schools is ORS 339.115(7).

Every school in Central Point School District has a Student Wellness Specialist (SWS). Reach out to your school's SWS for immediate support. For SWS contact information, please click here. Every school district in Oregon has at least one designated Homeless Student Liaison to provide direct assistance to homeless families and unaccompanied youths to access and achieve in school.
