The Department is hosting bidders conferences in March and April to learn more about the McKinney-Vento competitive grant opportunity. These sessions are designed to give interested and eligible districts the chance to get familiar with the grant, and ask questions regarding the grant opportunity.
The purpose of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Children and Youth Program is to ensure that all children and youth, including preschoolers, have equal access to the same free and appropriate public education, as non-homeless children and youth. See more at the Ohio Department of Education's McKinney-Vento Resources for Awareness.
Soon, ALL preschool and school-age child care licensing and Step Up To Quality functions will be
done in the Ohio Child Licensing and Quality System.
