Back to School with McKinney-Vento 2023
As our students return to school this fall, more families may need services under the federal McKinney-Vento Act. This webinar is intended to help McKinney-Vento Liaisons identify eligible students and provide immediate enrollment. This session will review the provisions of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act as it relates to the identification, immediate enrollment, and transportation of students experiencing temporary housing.
By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:
Identify the rights of students experiencing temporary housing and the LEA’s responsibility to ensure those rights.
Describe the criteria for a student to be eligible for benefits as defined by the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act.
Provide the benefits of immediate enrollment and transportation to eligible students.
