Homeless & Foster Youth: World Cafe July 14, 2017
Duration: 8:00 am - 3:30 pm
Over the past three years we have needed to integrate many new state laws as well as federal mandates introduced under the Every Student Succeeds Act. The implementation of these laws impacts the landscape for services for students experiencing homelessness and those in foster care. This all-day interactive workshop will cover the essentials that will assist the homeless and foster liaisons working in districts and charter schools. Laws, policies and promising practices will be highlighted; participants will be able to immediately apply the information as they work through real case scenarios. School and district level staff who would benefit most from this workshop are homeless and foster youth liaisons, front office personnel, principals, assistant principals, deans, counselors, and new site and district administrators. Topics will include:
- Homeless and foster youth liaison basics including identification, educational responsibilities, school placement, attendance, transportation, student records, equal access, and much more.
- Federal and state laws, legislative changes, the impact on service, and promising practices.
- Data and documentation
- LCAP alignment
- LCFF and funding concerns
- Access to early education services
- Transition age youth and access to college
- Community collaboration
- And more….
