Homeless Information - MdKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act

Education for Homeless Children and Youth

The Education for Homeless Children and Youth Program is funded under the McKinney –Vento Homeless Assistance Act to ensure that homeless children and youth have access to the same free, appropriate public education that is provided to all children.  It further requires that attendance laws not be used to keep homeless children and youth from attending school. All faculty and staff must complete a mandatory in-service regarding homeless education each year which is available to your school as a PowerPoint presentation on the JCS website or via In-Service Training.

Who is Homeless?

The McKinney-Vento Act (Section 725) defines “homeless children and youth” (school-age and younger) as:
A.  Children and youth who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence, including children and youth who are:

  1. Sharing the housing of other persons due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason (i.e. “doubled-up”).
  2. Living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, or camping grounds due to lack of alternative adequate accommodations.
  3. Living in emergency or transitional shelters.
  4. Abandoned in hospitals.
  5. Awaiting foster care placement (i.e., DHR has removed the children from the home and placed them in a transitional/temporary setting such as a relative’s home or an assessment unit).

B.  Children and youth who have a primary nighttime residence that is a public or private place not designed for, or ordinarily used as, a regular sleeping accommodation for human beings.

C.  Children and youth who are living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, bus or train stations, or similar settings.

D.  Migrant/ESL/ELL children who qualify as homeless if they are living in circumstances described above.

E.  The term unaccompanied youth includes a young person not in the physical custody of a parent or guardian. This would include runaways living in runaway shelters, abandoned buildings, cars, on the streets, or in other inadequate housing; children and youth denied housing by their families (sometimes referred to as “throwaway children and youth”); and school-age unwed mothers living in homes for unwed mothers because they have no other housing available.

ELL & WIDA Information for Parents

WIDA is proud to announce the release of a new webinar series designed specifically for families of English language learners (ELLs).
An Introduction to English Standards and Assessments for Parents is a three-part webinar series designed specifically for parents, or families, of ELLs in grades K-12.   The series is available in English and Spanish on the WIDA website (www.wida.us).  Each webinar in the series is organized around three frequently asked questions by parents, including:
What does it mean to be an English language learner?
How is my child expected to use language in school?
What does the ACCESS for ELLs Parent/Guardian Score Report tell me?
Families are critical stakeholders within the comprehensive system of standards and assessments of WIDA, and as such, have the right to know and understand how their child is progressing in his or her English language development. Educators are encouraged to share these resources with families throughout the year and in a variety of ways.
