Federal Programs

  • As a department, we evaluate and implement federal programs that will result in a higher quality of education for all of our MCS students.

McKinney Vento

  • Eligibility for McKinney Vento is determined by the District’s Office of Innovative Practices. Referrals need to go through the students local school. The school Homeless Liaison works closely with the district office staff to assure families are identified. McKinney Vento is determined for one school year at a time. A new SRS form should be completed each year for consideration.

    For more information, contact your school's Homeless Liaison or visit GaDoe's McKinney-Vento Education for Homeless Children and Youth Program.
