When Working Together Works: Academic Success for Students in Out-of-Home Care. Best Practices in Homeless Education
National Center for Homeless Education at SERVE
The National Center for Homeless Education and the Legal Center for Foster Care and Education present this brief to help educators and child welfare advocates work together to support the academic success of children and youth in out-of-home care. The brief offers practical, proven strategies for implementing two federal laws collaboratively: The McKinney-Vento Act, which applies to state and local educational agencies, and the Fostering Connections to Success and Increasing Adoptions Act, which applies to state and local child welfare agencies. Specifically, this brief will assist state and local agencies and staff in: (1) Laying a foundation for working together; (2) Agreeing on requirements and expectations; (3) Promoting school stability; and (4) Incorporating children fully in classes and school activities. [This paper was developed with Legal Center for Foster Care and Education.]
