The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act is a federal law that provides rights and services for students experiencing homelessness. It applies to all local educational agencies (LEAs) and public schools, including public charter schools. Authored jointly by the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools and SchoolHouse Connection, this toolkit is intended as a charter school-focused resource that explains the basic legal requirements of the McKinney Vento Act, while highlighting a few examples of best practices from the charter school community.

The following questions and answers were submitted by charter school staff during a webinar convened by the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools (National Alliance) and SchoolHouse Connection (SHC) in December 2019, and during in-person convenings of charter schools by SHC in early 2020.
