Supporting Students in Temporary Housing-Identification & Eligibility

Homelessness creates significant educational barriers for children and youth. Students experiencing temporary housing lack basic resources that impact their ability to attend and succeed in school. The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act provides the necessary benefits and supports to overcome educational barriers. This webinar will support McKinney-Vento Liaisons in the identification of students experiencing homelessness and in the determination of eligibility for services.

 

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to: 

  • Identify possible risk factors/causes of homelessness.

  • Gain knowledge of strategies for the identification of students experiencing temporary homelessness.

  • Determine eligibility benefits based on the provisions of the McKinney-Vento Act.

  • Receive resources to support the identification and eligibility of students experiencing homelessness.
