     FAQs

    What will I need to enroll my child?

    The McKinney-Vento Act requires that children experiencing homelessness be enrolled in school without delay. When registering, parents will be asked for school records, birth certificate, and immunization records. If the parent does not have all of these items, the child will be enrolled and the school will work with you to obtain these documents.

    Who is the school-based liaison for families experiencing homelessness?

    The school's Registrar and the Professional School Counselor are designated as liaisons for families that are experiencing homelessness. The school-based liaison is responsible for giving you a copy of the parent and student rights under the McKinney-Vento Act, providing you a list of family resources and working with you to complete the McKinney-Vento Program's Homeless Student Services form.

    How will my child get to school?

    Transportation will be provided for students to the school of origin or the school within the residential boundaries, except for students who live within walking distance.

    How do I ensure my child receives services provided by the MVP office?

    Parents must complete the MVP Student Services form each year that the child continues to live in temporary housing. Failure to complete this form prior to the start of each school year can result in a delay of services, to include a delay in transportation services.

    Who do I call if there is a delay in enrollment?

    Contact the MVP Office if you have questions or concerns regarding enrollment.
