Homeless Education - McKinney-Vento

The goal of PCM is to keep students in school who find themselves in temporary or transitional housing during the school year.

You and/or your family are considered "homeless" if you are:

  • Living in a shelter, motel, vehicle, or campground;

  • Living on the street;

  • Living in an abandoned building, trailer, or other inadequate accommodation;

  • Doubled up with friends or relatives due to loss of housing, economic need or similar reason;

Homeless students have the choice of remaining in the school they have been attending at the time the became homeless or enrolling in a school near their temporary housing. In either case, homeless students are guaranteed transportation, even between school districts.

For enrollment and transportation support, please contact your child's school or Desiree Porter at 509-336-5909 or desireep@mypcm.org

Homeless students have certain rights under Federal law, including:

  • The right to go to school and receive the services you need, just like other students;

  • The right to continue in the school you were in before you became homeless, if you want to;

  • The right to continue in the same school you are in if you are homeless now;

  • The right to transportation to school, according to current transportation guidelines;

  • The right to enroll and attend classes without giving a permanent address;

  • The right to enroll and attend classes even if you are missing documents usually required for enrollment.

Please contact us if materials are needed for languages other than English.

The greatest gifts we can give our children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence."
