A 'homeless child' is defined by the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act as a child whose parent(s) or guardian(s) have lost permanent residence and may now live with friends or family in a shelter, motel, car, or other place that is not a conventional place to reside. Each child of a homeless individual and each unaccompanied homeless youth have equal access to the same free, appropriate public education as provided to other children and youth. A homeless child may attend the district school that the child attended when permanently housed or the district school in which the child last enrolled.
