McKinney-Vento Transportation Provision for Student in Homeless Situations

Changing schools greatly interferes with a student's academic and social development. To accomodate highly moblie students (those without permanent nightly residence) legislation was passed that requires local educational agencies to provide these students with transportation to and from their school of origin at the parent or guardian's request. For more information about students in transition, please visit our Homeless Education Project page.
