School district obligations regarding homeless students have been significantly expanded. The McKinney-Vento Act, the federal law designed to address the unique challenges that homeless children and youth experience in the school setting, was recently re-authorized when Congress replaced the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) in December 2015 with the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). ESSA requires that school districts begin implementing the new McKinney-Vento requirements by October 1, 2016. We revised our policy #7131 -- Education of Homeless Children and Youth, to reflect these changes. Subscribers to our administrative service also received a revised regulation #7131R -- Education of Homeless Children and Youth, which reflects these latest mandates. The regulation details relevant definitions of terms related to homelessness; the new "best interest determination" process and the steps to be followed by school districts when considering the school selection made by the parent, guardian, or unaccompanied youth; changes to the dispute resolution process; as well as revised language pertaining to the expanded duties of the designated District Liaison for Homeless Youth.
