Homeless Education Program
Newport-Mesa Unified School District is dedicated to supporting families who are experiencing housing instability. We will assist you in accessing resources and eliminating barriers necessary for your child to be successful in school.
MCKINNEY-VENTO HOMELESS EDUCATION ASSISTANCE ACT
The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act is a federal legislation that ensures the educational rights and protections of children and youth experiencing homelessness. It requires all local educational agencies (LEAs) to ensure that homeless students have access to the same free, appropriate public education, including public preschools, as provided to other children and youth.
