Answer: Yes. If one of the parents meets the McKinney-Vento definition of homelessness, and the student resides some of the week with that parent, then the student meets the definition of homelessness. The instability between the housed and the homeless parent constitutes lack of fixed, regular, and adequate housing.
A student’s unmarried parents share 50/50 legal custody. One parent has a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence. The other is experiencing homelessness. Does this student qualify for McKinney Vento services?
