ESSA and Education for Homeless Children and Youth

By Dana Scott, State Coordinator, Education of Homeless Children and Youth Program
Friday, March 11, 2016 - 1:17pm

The Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 includes changes to strengthen and improve the education of over 1.3 million children and youth experiencing homelessness, from early childhood through high school graduation. It incorporates best practices from states and school districts across the country to increase the identification, enrollment, stability, and school success of children and youth experiencing homelessness. ESSA increases resources for homeless students by expanding the availability and use of Title IA funds, and by raising the authorized funding level for the McKinney-Vento Act’s Education for Homeless Children and Youth program.  Please use the following link for a summary of the major amendments on homelessness in The Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015.
