Answer: Under the McKinney-Vento Act, students experiencing homelessness must be able to participate fully in athletic activities. 42 USC 11434A(1). You can read and download a brief that explains his rights here, and we also have a sample template and advocacy tools that you can use to assist him, if you need those.
I have a McKinney-Vento student staying with me, and he is transferring schools since he has moved. He is automatically ineligible for 50% of his wrestling matches per athletic association rules. Can you assist with a sample letter or rules/laws for McKinney-Vento students that apply to athletic participation?
