It is the belief of the Kettle Moraine School District that all students can and will learn. The McKinney-Vento Homeless program removes barriers to learning for homeless children and youth. All homeless children and youth will be served using all resources available to the district.



    The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act (MVHAA) defines homeless children as individuals who lack a fixed, regular and adequate nighttime residence. This includes children who share the housing of other persons due to the loss of housing, economic hardship or a similar reason. Children living in motels, hotels, trailer parks or camp grounds due to the lack of alternative adequate accommodations are also included in this population. The following services may be provided for homeless children: enrollment assistance, free breakfast/lunch, books, school supplies, and referral to social service agencies, community resources and other related services that can assist basic needs.

    If you are or aware of the families who are homeless or if you are in need of additional information on how homelessness is defined, please call the Kettle Moraine Student Services Director, Homeless Liaison Officer, Dr. Charles Wiza at 262-968-6300 ext 5341 or wizacharles@kmsd.edu.
