The McKinney-Vento Act was designed to help families who, because of economic hardship, have had to change their housing situation. If you are living with another family member (parent, sibling, cousin, etc.), a friend, two or more families in the same dwelling, RV or Camper, a shelter, a vehicle, a motel/hotel or efficiency apartment or any other temporary situation then you may be eligible for services, such as free breakfast/lunch, school supplies, etc. The school counselor is the contact person at the school level and I have been contacting families that may qualify based on information given on the student information forms; however, if you feel that you may qualify for these services please feel free to contact me at the school. Mr. Jim Kirby is the contact person at the Harrison County Board of Education.
