MCKINNEY-VENTO HOMELESS EDUCATION PROGRAM
The Dayton Public School McKinney-Vento Homeless Children and Youth (HCY) Programs ensure that all homeless children and youth have equal access to a free and appropriate public education, including public preschool education.
The McKinney-Vento Assistance Act, reauthorized along with the enactment of the No Child Left Behind Act in January 2002, requires each Local Education Agency (LEA) to identify a liaison to represent the district in meeting certain requirements of the act. The law indicates that the LEA liaison shall ensure that all homeless children, youth and families are identified through coordinated activities with other entities.
When a student is identified as being McKinney-Vento eligible, staff will:
- Assist with enrollment, monitor school attendance and arrange transportation (preK-8 students)
- Provide school supplies and other school-related materials as needed
- Advocate for and support students and families through school and home visits
- Set clear expectations for student behavior, attendance and academic performance
- Assist students/families access to community services
- Assist students/families with access to tutoring, special education, and English language learning resources
- Assist students so they can participate in sports, field trips, and school activities regardless of their ability to pay or to provide their own transportation.
