Students in Temporary Housing

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act and Chancellor’s Regulation A-780 ensure that students residing in temporary living situations have access to the same public education and services that are available to permanently housed students.

The Students in Temporary Housing (STH) unit within the Office of Safety and Youth Development is available to answer questions on the rights of students residing in temporary housing situations. In addition, STH Content Experts are available in each borough to provide technical assistance and to work directly with schools.
