    RE: Can I Go To School ?


    Thank you for getting into contact with us here at the National Runaway Safeline. From what you have told us about your situation it sounds like you are going through a very tough time right now. It seems like it might be a little scary to think about not being able to go to school when you really want to. Is there anything is going on in particular that caused you to runaway from home?

    Unfortunately, we aren’t legal experts on what the rules or on how schools treat children that have runaway from home. There is something called “The McKinney-Vento Act” that works towards ensuring educational rights and protections for youth experiencing homelessness. There is a website that might be able to help you understand what this actual means and get yourself more familiarized ( Another thing that we might be able to suggest is that you can call the school anonymously and explain that you’re planning on attending and ask them questions about being a homeless/runaway youth that is trying to get an education.

    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat which is open every day from 4:30p to 11:30p CST and can be accessed here:
