Who is considered homeless? Under the McKinney-Vento Act, the term “homeless children and youths” means individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence and includes children and youths: who are sharing the housing of others due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason; are living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, or camping grounds due to the lack of alternative adequate accommodations; are living in emergency or transitional shelters; or are abandoned in hospitals; 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; who are living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, bus or train stations, or similar settings; and who are migratory children who live in one of the above circumstances.

Response to Intervention (RTI) Action: A Three Tier Model
What Does the RTI Process Look Like at the School Level?
Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports
Title I Supported Programs at Our School
This is a program that allows students to experience instructional support from a qualified certified teacher that is geared towards their individual needs. It gives students the opportunity to ask questions and practice skills similar to the requirements of the Mississippi Department of Education (MDE) standards.
The newly induct program was created to provide instructional support on state-required standards. The students selected to attend this program were chosen according to their academic needs. Also, students get a chance to work on homework and receive assistance as needed.
A high-quality early childhood program provides an environment designed for children. This learning environment is characterized by supportive relationships and conversations that foster language development. The environment is strengthened by curriculum and materials that engage children in developmentally appropriate activities that address all domains of development (social/emotional, language, cognition, and general knowledge, physical well-being and motor development).
Parental and Family Engagement Support
We have a federally paid parent coordinator available to assist parents with supporting their child’s academic progress between home and school. The parent coordinator provides opportunities for parents to participate in workshops and activities that will greatly benefit the academic process. Also, the parent coordinator organizes and conducts planning meetings with parents and volunteering opportunities that will help influence academic success. For more information, please contact Ms. Churna Miller, Parent Coordinator.
