Statewide Testing & Compulsory Attendance

ELL Parent and Students

We provide ELL services for students whose primary language is not English. We also provide information about our services to our parents in a language they understand. Please contact the office for details.

Homeless Children

We follow the following guidelines for homeless children.

The McKinney-Vento Act’s definition of who qualifies as a homeless child or youth is quite broad: “Children and youth who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence,” including, but not limited to:

  • Sharing the housing of others due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or similar reason (“doubled up”).

  • Living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, camping grounds due to lack of adequate alternative accommodations.

  • Living in emergency or transitional shelters.

  • Abandoned in hospitals.

  • Awaiting foster care placement.

  • Living in a public or private place is not designed for humans to live.

  • Living in cars, parks, abandoned buildings, bus or train stations, etc.

  • Migratory children living in the above circumstances

 

If a child is homeless, we provide the following services.

  • We will work with the students to help with transportation.

  • Students have a right to immediate enrollment, even if they don’t have all of their paperwork – for example, medical/health records, proof of residency, former school records, immunization records.

  • Students have a right to access all of the school’s programs and services on the same basis as to all other students, including special education, migrant education, vocational education, school nutrition programs (school breakfast and lunch), and extracurriculars.

  • Students and their families have access to a dispute resolution process through the Ohio Department of Education when they disagree with a school about how the McKinney-Vento Act applies in their situation.
