To counteract the educational disruption caused by mobility, the McKinney-Vento Act provides students experiencing homelessness with the right to continue attending the school of origin or enroll in any public school that non-homeless students who live in the same attendance area are eligible to attend (NCHE).
Wake County Public School System, in accordance with federal legislation, provides transportation to students experiencing homelessness by utilizing regular bus routes and contract services.
REQUEST TRANSPORTATION: a parent/caregiver/youth can request transportation by contacting the child's school McKinney-Vento Liaison.
If approved, transportation is only required to be provided to and from a temporary residence and school. Any other request (ex. to and from a daycare) will need approval by the transportation department. A request should be submitted by the child's school McKinney-Vento Liaison.
