TITLE X, McKinney-Vento Education of Homeless Student and Youth

Title X, McKinney-Vento Education of Homeless Children and Youth guarantees that students/families identified as being homeless have access to all educational services. 


Currently, Picayune School District does not receive additional funding through Title X.  Picayune School District dedicates a portion of Title I, Part A funds and district funds to meet the educational needs of identified homeless students/families. 


Educational needs of homeless students/families are those defined as necessary to provide a student access to educational services. 


Due limited funding, Picayune School District does not use available funds to support rent, utilities, or personnal transportation needs of identified homeless students/families.


Picayune School District operates a Parenting Center located at 505 Laurel Street, Picayune, MS  39466.  This office is staffed by a counselor, nurse, and two social workers who give direction as it pertains to services offered to those students and families identified as being homeless.
