    The Families in the Transition program
     
    The Oak Harbor Schools Families In Transition program implements the McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Act. The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Act of 1973 provides support for homeless children and youth to continue their education without interruption or barriers. If your family is homeless, or if you are in a temporary living situation due to economic circumstances, your preschool-aged and school-aged children have certain rights or protections under federal law.
