The OCPS McKinney-Vento Program (MVP) provides support to families currently in housing transition due to financial hardship. Housing transition includes those lacking a fixed, adequate, or regular housing situation. Depending on the situation, this can include families living in shared housing, garage or studio apartments, hotels, shelters, and/or cars. If your family or a family you know is currently living in housing that fits this description, we ask the family complete the OCPS digital Student Residency Questionnaire or SRQ. Once completed an OCPS McKinney-Vento Program staff member will review the information. If the family qualifies, a staff member will reach out to explain rights and supports provided by the McKinney-Vento Act.


To complete the SRQ, families can visit the OCPS McKinney-Vento Program website at https://homeless.ocps.net and click on the link labeled Digital SRQ or they can link directly to the SRQ by going HERE. For additional questions, families can call 407-317-3485.
