As the numbers of homeless children continue to rise, so do the immediate and long-term challenges of meeting these students’ unique needs. Find out exactly how your district’s programs must serve homeless students to ensure their academic success and your district’s compliance with multiple federal laws — including the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015.
Whether you have to create, scale-up or alter your programs for the new law, you get up-to-date tools and federal guidance to align services with students’ educational, physical and social-emotional needs:
- Clarification of ESSA’s new rules regarding how the Title I set-aside may be spent for transportation and the district liaison’s salary
- Breakdown of allowable expenditures for Title I, McKinney-Vento and IDEA
- Out-of-the-box strategies to identify, enroll, place and transport homeless students
- And more!
Plus, you get a Portable Student Portfolio Checklist, Parental Records Release Form, and more model documents to help you coordinate your homeless education program.
