9:00 am - 10:30 am
Join the NKY Forum as we explore the problems, causes, and solutions behind teen homelessness in our region. Housing insecurity has consequences on a teen’s ability to study, to focus, and to succeed after graduation. Congress, recognizing the large scope of the problem, passed legislation in the McKinney-Vento Act that requires schools to identify housing insecurity in its students and provide resources to remove barriers for them in gaining an education.
The discussion will begin at 9 am on October 24, Tuesday. Attendance is both in-person at the Newport Branch of the Campbell County Public Library (901 East Sixth Street, Newport) or virtually via Zoom.
Our panel includes Jay Brewer, Superintendent for Dayton Independent Schools; Kate Kassis, Director of Youth Services for the Brighton Center; and Alania Kaiser, McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Coordinator at Campbell County High School.
