To determine a student’s McKinney-Vento eligibility, school districts must determine whether a student’s living arrangement meets the McKinney-Vento definition of homeless. In this process, school districts may encounter instances where they feel the need to confirm information provided about a child’s or youth’s living arrangement. This NCHE brief provides local homeless education liaisons and school districts with recommended steps to take and practices to avoid when seeking to confirm a student’s McKinney-Vento eligibility.
