Information for Parents & School-Aged Children on the McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Act

Students who lack a fixed, regular or adequate nighttime shelter or live in any of the conditions below may qualify for support services as a displaced student.
  • In a shelter (family shelter, domestic violence shelter, youth shelter, or transitional living program); 
  • In a motel, hotel, or in weekly-rate housing;
  • In a house or apartment with more than one family because of economic hardship or loss;
  • In temporary foster care or with an adult who is not the student’s parent or legal guardian;
  • In substandard housing (no electricity, no water, and/or no heat); or
  • With friends or family because the student is a runaway or an unaccompanied youth.

 If your school age children are experiencing any of these difficulties, please contact the District’s Homeless Liaison to discuss how Bandera ISD can help support students during this COVID-19 time period.
