The McKinney-Vento grant was released on Friday, August 17, 2012. Districts are invited to apply for this competitive grant. All grant applications are due on September 14, 2012. For more information regarding the grant, please contact Heather Denny at, or (406) 444-2036.

All Homeless Liaisons are invited to join the new Homeless Education Program's online wiki and community. This is a private community where liaisons can ask questions and share advice on how to create an effective program to meet the needs of all homeless students. The Office of Public Instruction (OPI) will also share guidance, research, and other information through this wiki. Information is also posted on Heather Denny's public "teacher" page on Facebook and through the Homeless newsletter. If you would like an invitation to join the wiki or to receive our newsletter, please email Heather Denny at or Shawna Pieske at
