Lunch & Learn #2
The Role of Schools in Runaway & Prevention Response
Monday, November 22, 2021
12:30 pm EST / 11:30 am CST
Join us for this important conversation led by the Executive Director of SchoolHouse Connection, Barbara Duffield. Pre-pandemic, public schools identified 1.4 million children and youth experiencing homelessness, including a growing number of youth who are homeless on their own. Federal law protects the educational rights of these youth, and new resources are available through the American Rescue Plan Act to help ensure their identification, enrollment, and success. Learn about national trends, best practices, and how to connect to school-based supports.
