Hello DCS Parents;

PLEASE NOTE THAT JYK DISCOVERY CHARTER SCHOOL IS STILL ADHERING TO THE MASK MANDATE. STUDENTS SHOULD REPORT TO SCHOOL WITH MASK EVERY DAY.  WE ARE ASKING THAT EACH CHILD BRING AT LEAST 2 BOXES OF MASK IN PER MONTH FOR THEIR CLASS.  THIS WILL HELP US STAY STOCKED AND CONTINUE TO KEEP OUR SCHOLARS SAFE. 

 

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTION TOWARDS A GERM-FREE SCHOOL YEAR. 

 

WARM REGARDS

MS EVANS, COVID MANAGER

POWERSCHOOL PARENT ACCOUNT SETUP

POWERSCHOOL PARENT ACCOUNT SETUP PDF VERSION

The McKinney-Vento Education of Homeless Children and Youth Assistance Act is a federal law that ensures immediate enrollment and educational stability for homeless children and youth. McKinney-Vento provides federal funding to states for the purpose of supporting district programs that serve homeless students.

Defining Homeless: The McKinney-Vento Act defines homeless children as “individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence.”

The act provides examples of children who would fall under this definition:
*Children and youth sharing housing due to loss of housing, economic hardship or a similar reason
*Children and youth living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, or camp grounds due to lack of alternative

  accommodations
*Children and youth living in emergency or transitional shelters
*Children and youth abandoned in hospitals
*Children and youth awaiting foster care placement
*Children and youth whose primary nighttime residence is not ordinarily used as a regular sleeping

  accommodation (e.g. park benches, etc)
*Children and youth living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, bus

  or train stations
*Migratory children and youth living in any of the above situations
