DPI Training Modules

McKinney-Vento Training Module

DPI has created a training module to support educators and staff who interact with students experiencing homelessness. The module provides in-depth professional development for school staff on the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act. The module addresses the law’s purpose and requirements, as well as scenarios for participants to test their knowledge. There is a review built into the end of each situation and an option to receive an email notification upon completion of the module.

Unaccompanied Homeless Youth Module

The Unaccompanied Homeless Youth (UHY) module is intended for homeless liaisons and other school staff to gain an understanding of the circumstances UHY experience and the requirements under McKinney-Vento to support these students. The module covers topics such as the difference between unaccompanied youth and unaccompanied homeless youth, how to identify homeless youth, and understanding for which services UHY are eligible. There is a review built into the end of each situation and an option to receive an email notification upon completion of the module. NOTE: Before completing this module, it is recommended that you complete the McKinney-Vento Training Module located above.
