Students in Temporary Housing: Students’ Rights and Schools’ Responsibilities

The McKinney-Vento Act gives important educational rights to students who are homeless, or in unstable or temporary housing. The Charter Center hosted a free workshop, presented by NYS-TEACHS, to help schools understand how to meet these students’ needs and comply with changes in the law resulting from the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 (ESSA).

Topics Covered Included:

  • McKinney-Vento definitions: Students’ Rights and Schools’ Responsibilities
  • Schools’ roles under McKinney-Vento and the new Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)
  • Transportation and other school services for students in temporary housing
  • Incorporating trauma-sensitive practices into school programs and policy
