About the Event

Meeting the Needs of Recently Arrived Children and Youth

Thursday, March 16, 2023

9:30 am-11:00 a.m.

Immigrant students who experience homelessness are protected under the McKinney-Vento Act, regardless of their immigration status. All school-age children are entitled to a free, appropriate public education. The McKinney-Vento Act requires that students experiencing homelessness be enrolled immediately, even if lacking the necessary documentation for enrollment. This webinar will focus on ways to meet the needs of recently arrived children and youth while addressing barriers to academic success.

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify the key provisions of the McKinney-Vento Act as it relates to the rights of recently arrived children and youth.
  • Describe the educational barriers that impact academic growth and determine strategies to ensure success.
  • Utilize strategies to support recently arrived students experiencing temporary housing.
  • Use resources to meet the needs of recently arrived children and youth.
