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.
