We had such a great turnout at our “Helping Homeless Students: McKinney-Vento 101” workshop on August 26, 2014, and we hope you found the topic just as engaging and informative as we do. As promised, here is a list of resources our wonderful presenter, Katara Jordan from Columbia Legal Services, put together to navigate common hurdles that prevent homeless students and their families from accessing the valuable services they need to get to and stay in school.
Basic Education Rights and Opportunities in Public Schools
How to be an Education Advocate
Protecting the Educational Rights of Students with Disabilities in Public Schools
Other general information including the above handouts:
Serving Students Experiencing Homelessness under Title I
What Service Providers Should Know
