Meeting the Needs of Recently Arrived Children and Youth

Immigrant students who experience homelessness are protected under the McKinney-Vento Act, regardless of their immigration status.

The McKinney-Vento Act requires that students experiencing homelessness be enrolled immediately, even if lacking the necessary documentation for enrollment. This webinar will focus on ways to meet the needs of recently arrived children and youth while addressing barriers to academic success.
