Answer: The student would be eligible to enroll in the school with your daughter under the same conditions and subject to the same requirements of any other student who is openly enrolling in the school. McKinney-Vento students have the right to immediate enrollment in the school of origin or a school another student living where the student is living would be eligible to attend. 42 USC 11432(g)(3)(A)(ii). Since your daughter’s school is out of district, he would have to comply with the open enrollment rules and processes.
I have a homeless youth staying with me. He’s finishing this year at his school of origin, but he wants to go to the school my daughter goes to on open enrollment outside our district. If he still qualifies for McKinney-Vento next year, can he enroll in my daughter’s school?
