What ages does the McKinney-Vento Act cover?

Posted by:

The McKinney-Vento Act applies to children and youth ages 21 and under, consistent with their eligibility for public education services under state and federal law. State laws vary, but generally provide access to all students until high school graduation or equivalent, or until age 18 (or over in some states). For special education students, federal law provides the right to access services until age 22.
