Dane County Homeless Education Network

Printer-friendly version

The Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD) and the Middleton Cross Plains Area School District (MCPASD) co-host 13 school districts and community partners to create a regional support system to address the needs of homeless children and youth in Dane County schools.

Using the McKinney -Vento Homeless Assistance Act as their guide, the Homeless Education Network of Dane County (HENDC) meets twice a year to share supports and eliminate barriers to education for these very vulnerable students.

The group renews the inter-district transportation agreement annually, and has discussed many topics including Transportation, Early Childhood, Community Resources, National Advocacy and Training Opportunities, Welcoming Practices, School Supports, Trauma and more.
