How Can I Support Students Living in Temporary Housing?
Students living in temporary housing have specific rights granted by the
McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act. Each school has a liaison that can
help families navigate the system during these housing transitions. In the
classroom, teachers may not be aware of a child’s housing status. However,
implementing daily routines and using a strengths-based approach with all
students will help create a safe, positive environment for all students.
