Students in temporary housing face unique challenges in response to COVID-19. Schools and social service providers need up-to-date information about supports that are available for students and their families. This webinar will provide an opportunity for school staff and community based service providers to share their questions, discuss current concerns and learn about best practices. The webinar will also offer informational resources, links and tools that schools can share to meet students’ needs. We will discuss access to free school meals during school closures, strategies to support school access, updates about public benefits, and more.
The webinar is designed for professionals who work with school-age children and youth in all areas New York State outside of NYC.
In the near future, we will be posting a separate webinar date specifically for NYC DOE providers.
