This week’s new ESSA resource was inspired by Beth McCullough, liaison for Adrian Public Schools, MI. Beth wrote: “None of this work can be done without the law. Maybe we need to give liaisons the words. ‘If you think you need more time for this job, here are the parts of McKinney-Vento and ESSA that back you up.’ We can be great homeless education liaisons, but we can’t do this job without the support of laws behind us, allowing us, mandating us, and providing us the opportunity to make great things happen.”
SchoolHouse Connection’s “Making the Case” series will share real students’ situations and walk through making the legal case for providing the support the student needs. Let us know if you find this document helpful (email@example.com), and we’ll provide more.
