Special Education, Homelessness and Foster Care

When McKinney-Vento and Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) face off in a school, which law wins? This webinar will discuss the intersection of these two laws and how they work together in practice. We’ll address questions such as surrogate parents for unaccompanied youth and children in foster care, evaluating students who have missed a lot of school or whose achievement may be impacted by homelessness or foster care, immediate enrollment for students with Individualized Education Programs (IEPs), transportation, private schools, and everyone’s stickiest question: Who pays?
