Liaison Overview

The liaison is responsible for identifying temporarily housed youth who may be eligible for enrollment in the school district and ensuring they receive the education and services they are guaranteed by law.

Read about the liaison responsibilities or update your liaison contact information for your school district or BOCES. For more information about students experiencing homelessness and the liaison role, see our Top 10 Resources for Liaisons.

Please note that there are new liaison responsibilities under the Every Student Succeeds Act effective October 1, 2016.
