McKinney-Vento School Selection Rights

In this interactive NCHE webinar, presenters will review important changes related to school selection for homeless children and youth under the McKinney-Vento Act, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Presenters will cover:

  • McKinney-Vento basics and context
  • The McKinney-Vento Act’s definition of school of origin
  • McKinney-Vento provisions related to determining the best interest of a student in terms of school selection (local school or school of origin)
  • The provision of school-of-origin transportation to currently homeless students and formerly homeless students who have become permanently housed
  • McKinney-Vento provisions related to dispute resolution, including disputes about school enrollment and selection

Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with presenters and fellow attendees through polls and Q&A/discussion periods.
