  • Attending School


    So recently you guys told me about a way to attend school even though I'm a runaway. Something about the McKinney Vento act or something. I want to do this and I contacted the liaison. Before I go, I just want to know. Do I have to give my real name and stuff. I'm pretty sure my parents filed a report so I don't want to go back. Since they don't need birth certificates and school records, how would they know Im not the person they say I am.

    Hey there,

    Thank you for being able to reach out to us here at the National Runaway Safeline, it sounds like you are exploring your options and seeing what is best for your situation. It’s great that you are reaching out to see what could help your situation.

    We are not legal experts here and we don’t necessarily know the rules and regulations of how every school district handles youth who are under the McKinny Vento Act. The best way to find out is by reaching out to the school district and asking these specific questions.

    We wish you the best of luck with whatever it is you decide to do.

    Stay strong,

    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
