Education of Homeless Children and Youth

What Parents & Unaccompanied Youth In Transition Need To Know About Education In The Lyon County School District:

 · Free school breakfast and lunch for students.

Migrant Education

7 months ago

Title I C - Migrant Education

The Migrant Education Program provides technical assistance and financial support to improve the educational opportunities and academic success of migrant children, youth, agricultural workers, fishers, and their families. The general purpose of the Migrant Education Program (MEP) is to ensure that migrant children benefit from the same free public education provided to other children. The Migrant Education funds are federal funds to support high quality education programs for migratory children age 3 through 21. The funds help ensure that migratory children who move from other states, or within the state, are not penalized in any manner by disparities among states in curriculum, graduation requirements, or state academic content and student academic achievement standards. Funds also ensure that migratory children receive full and appropriate opportunities to meet the same challenging state academic content and student academic achievement standards that all children are expected to meet.

For more information, please contact:   (775) 463-6800 ext. 10625.

21st Century Grant Program

The purpose of the 21st Century Community Learning Center program is to establish or expand community learning centers that provide out-of-school academic enrichment opportunities, along with activities designed to complement the students’ regular academic program. 21st Century Community Learning Centers must also offer families of these students literacy and related educational development including tutoring and mentoring, homework help, academic enrichment (such as hands-on science or technology programs), and community service opportunities, as well as music, arts, sports, and cultural activities. At the same time, centers help working parents by providing a safe environment for students during non-school hours, or periods when school is not in session.

In collaboration with the Boys and Girls Club, arts and cultural organizations, and youth development agencies, 21st Century program helps support these goals via Federal funding.
