State Plan for the Education of Ohio's Homeless Children and Youth, May 1, 1989-September 30, 1990.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Federal Assistance.
The Ohio State plan for educating homeless children and youth responds to requirements of the Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act of 1987. The plan is comprised of a foreword, six sections, and two appendices. The foreword reviews the history and provisions of the McKinney Act and summarizes Ohio's planned action for homeless education. The first section, "Federal Requirements," recapitulates the federal statute. The second section, "Definitions," elaborates on terms central to homeless education. The third section, "Ohio's School-Age Homeless Children and Youth," describes problems of data gathering, statistical analysis, and needs assessment for homeless children and youth. The fourth section, "Potential Educational Concerns for Ohio's Homeless Children and Youth," discusses the following issues in terms of federal statutes, state objectives, and Ohio codes: (1) residency; (2) program continuity and sensitivity; (3) transportation; and (4) records. The fifth section, "Long-Term Goals," affirms Ohio's commitment to educational opportunities for homeless students and urges increased federal funding to support their needs. The sixth section, "Time Lines," presents implementation dates by month for 1988 through 1990 for 30 state objectives. Appendix A is Subtitle B of the McKinney Act. Appendix B is Ohio's Revised Code for residency requirements. (AF)
