The Student Services department supports McKinney schools in providing a secure learning environment that aims to increase graduation rates of students who may be at risk of dropping out. This department focuses on helping students who are homeless, have development issues caused by crisis moments, have mental health issues, or are pregnant or parents. Students Services assists in the personal, intellectual, and emotional development that compliments a student’s academic experience in McKinney ISD.

McKinney Vento Homeless Education

The McKinney Vento Homeless Education Assistance Program protects the right for homeless children and youth to receive a free and appropriate public education.

Homelessness includes children and youth who are living with a friend, relative or someone else because they lost their home or can’t afford housing, children and youth who are staying in a motel or hotel due to lack of adequate alternative accommodations, children and youth who are living in an emergency or transitional shelter or a domestic violence shelter. It also includes children and youth who are living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, bus or train stations or many other similar settings.

Under the law, no student shall be stigmatized by school personnel due to homelessness.
