District Liaison Contacts

To ensure that families and students have access to assistance, districts must maintain a current McKinney-Vento contact with the state. To update your district's McKinney-Vento Homeless Liaison or McKinney-Vento Homeless District Administrative Contact. Please revise the Contacts Section of your district's 2023-2024 CIP Budget Narrative Application. CIP Budget Narrative can be accessed via the Central Login Application on the ODE District Website.

Oregon’s Student Success Act has a Student Investment Account designed to support districts to reduce academic disparities and increase achievement of students navigating houselessness living situations, those who are navigating poverty, and other historically underserved student groups. District Liaisons and ESDs are essential partners in this work.
