Students in temporary housing who need summer school to advance to the next grade, or who need summer school to graduate on time, must be provided the opportunity to attend summer school free of charge. School districts may be asked to cover fees associated with summer school for students in temporary housing. Students in temporary housing are entitled to transportation to and from summer school if the school district provides transportation to permanently housed students. In addition, school districts must provide transportation if the lack of transportation is a barrier to the student's ability to attend summer school, even if the district does not transport permanently housed students. During the summer months, all Local Education Agencies (LEAs, including school districts, charter schools, and BOCES) are also required to have a McKinney-Vento Liaison. They should appoint an interim summer Liaison if the academic year Liaison is unavailable during the summer months.
