Our Obligations under the McKinney-Vento Act

Charter schools have important obligations to students experiencing homelessness (also referred to as students in temporary housing) under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, the federal law that sets out the educational rights of such students.  We have provided resources on this page explaining our McKinney-Vento Policy, as well as the NYSED McKinney-Vento FAQ.
