Delaware adheres to the federal McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, which guarantees students the right to continue their education at the school they have been attending, even though they might no longer meet local residency requirements. According to the Act, students are considered to be homeless if they are living with or without their parents in a shelter (e.g. temporary family shelter, domestic violence shelter, runaway shelter), transitional housing, hotel or motel, campground, cars, or on the street. Also included are those children and youth temporarily living with relatives or friends (with or without their parents) because they do not have fixed, regular, safe and adequate residence, and children in foster care.
