Homelessness is defined as an individual who lacks a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence, according to the National Center for Homeless Education. It’s a national problem with a local presence.

A federal law — the McKinney-Vento Act — requires school districts to have a homeless education program. The act provides rights to students who are in a homeless situation, such as having access to the same programs that all other students have, receiving transportation to and from the school, and to not be segregated.
