Homeless Services:  McKinney Vento Program

What is the McKinney-Vento Program?
The McKinney-Vento Program is designed to assist children and youth that may be homeless in enrolling, attending, and succeeding in school. Under this program State educational agencies must ensure that each child and/or youth that is homeless has equal access to FAPE, free, appropriate public education as any other child or youth. This program was initially authorized in 1987 and was most recently reauthorized by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001.

What is meant by homeless children or youth?
The McKinney-Vento Program defines “homeless children and youth” as individuals that lack fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence. This includes -

  • Children and youth who are:
  • Sharing housing of other persons due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason. (often referred to as “doubled-up”);
  • Living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, or camping grounds due to lack of alternative adequate accommodations;
  • Living in emergency or transitional shelters;
  • Abandoned in hospitals; or
  • Awaiting foster placement.
  • Children and youth who have a primary nighttime residence that is public or private that is not ordinarily used as a regular sleeping accommodation for human beings.
  • Children and youth who are living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, bus or train stations, or similar settings; and
  • Migratory children who qualify as homeless because they are living in circumstances described above.

So what does this mean? 
This means that if you, your child or youth come under any of the circumstances above you may be eligible to enroll your child or youth under the McKinney-Vento Program. The Local Liaison, also referred to as the District Residency Coordinator, may be contacted to review your information and determine eligibility. (Contact info listed below).

The McKinney-Vento Program does is more than just assisting with enrollment. The program offers assistance with the school lunch program, local shelters, local food banks, housing, transportation for the child or youth, and other barriers that the child or youth may face. When initially contacting the District Residency Coordinator a Needs Assessment will be made through a variety of questions in regards to a brief background of the child or youth, current situation and circumstances, and future plans or residential housing. Prior to making contact with the District Residency Coordinator one should acquire and complete the following information from the school building secretary:

  • Residency Affidavit;
  • Residency Information Form;
  • Proof of Residence from the Homeowner Lesee (2 Forms); and
  • School registration forms

Once this information is completed and returned the District Residency Coordinator will be contacted and will follow-up with any questions or further information needed.

The Local Liaison, or District Residency Coordinator, for the Sebring Local School District is Toni Viscounte, Superintendent. Phone: (330) 938-6165, E-mail: tviscounte@sebring.k12.oh.us
