In 2012, Vermont experienced a 30% increase in identified homeless public school students. To ensure proper identification, enrollment, and support, it is vital that parents, schools, and advocates understand the rights of homeless students. This presentation will review the requirements of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, the many types of students covered by the Act, and the situations where conflict or misunderstanding may arise.
Presenter: Jay Diaz, Vermont Poverty Law Fellow / Staff Attorney, Poverty Law Project, Vermont Legal Aid
