Dispute 310 Appeal Form of Petition – NEW Form

If a family or student in temporary housing and their school district disagree about a student's McKinney-Vento eligibility for enrollment, school selection options, or transportation, the school district may challenge the student's eligibility under McKinney-Vento through the Dispute Resolution 310 process. When a dispute arises, McKinney-Vento liaisons must help the parent or youth appeal to the Commissioner of Education using this form. Forms for Filing an Appeal to the Commissioner Involving Homeless Children and Youth | Office of Counsel (nysed.gov)
