The Role of Transportation Under the McKinney-Vento Act

The intent of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act is to remove barriers to enrollment and attendance in school to ensure academic success.

  • Describe the transportation provisions in the McKinney-Vento Act and NYS Guidance.

  • Identify the benefits of providing transportation to students experiencing homelessness.

  • Utilize the transportation guide for future decision-making.

  • Plan how to address challenges in providing transportation for McKinney-Vento eligible students.
