A New York woman is facing criminal charges for allegations that she enrolled in and attended a high school, gaining access by telling the administration she was a homeless teenager.

In mid-December, an enrollee showed up at the Cairo-Durham School District office and disclosed that she was a homeless 15-year-old who was not currently attending school. She allegedly stated that her name was Riley Madison.

The student was immediately assigned a school and transportation services within the district based on the McKinney-Vento Act. This federally recognized assistance act ensures that children without stable living conditions are granted access to public education even if they don’t have the typical documentation required for registration.
