    Webinar: Are ALL the Children Well? A Community of Practice

    Dates and Times: Aug 16, 2022 10:00 AM ET; Aug 17, 2022 10:00 AM ET


    In the final installment of MAEC's four-part homeless education and family engagement webinar series, we have teamed with the National Center for Homeless Education (NCHE) for a two-day community of practice. Participants will audit their policies and practices related to students experiencing homelessness, and develop individualized action plans based on their findings.

    In this community of practice, participants will: (1) Develop an understanding of the McKinney-Vento Act; (2) Identify policies, practices, and systems of support available to students and families experiencing homeless; (3) Audit current policies and practices used by their school, district, or organization to support students and families experiencing homelessness; (4) Create an action plan to support the needs of students and families experiencing homelessness

    Each session lasts 90 minutes. 

    MAEC's Collaborative Action for Family Engagement (CAFE) and the Center for Education Equity (CEE) present Are ALL the Children Well? A Four-Part Homeless Education and Family Engagement webinar series. This series will raise awareness about students who experience homelessness and provide resources and guidance for working with schools, families, and communities.

    Join us as we demystify supports available for Out of School Time service providers, review strategies to ensure the preservation of dignity while advocating for students, and audit district-, school-, and community-based practices to ensure equitable access. Topics in the series include summer support, advocacy for LGBTQIA+ students and their families, state- and district-level partnerships, and community and team partnerships.
