LEA Requirements for Implementing McKinney-Vento Dispute Resolution Process
NYSED Field Memo
NYSED’s McKinney-Vento Field Memo #02-2011 (July 2011) provides assistance to LEAs and McKinney-Vento liaisons in navigating the appeal process and to ensure compliance with timelines for submission of the required forms. PLEASE NOTE: The information about the stay request in this document is out of date. In October 2016, the State Education Department updated its McKinney-Vento appeal form. Parents, guardians, and youth do not have to ask for a stay in McKinney-Vento appeals to the Commissioner anymore. Instead, school districts must continue enrollment and transportation until the Commissioner gives a final decision on any appeal.
