Sample Local Educational Agency McKinney-Vento Policy and the Accompanying Field Memo
NYSED Field Memo
On March 16, 2018, the New York State Education Department released an updated version of its Sample Local Educational Agency McKinney-Vento Policy. This new version reflects changes made by the reauthorization of McKinney-Vento Act under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and New York Education Law § 3209 on the Education of Homeless Children. LEAs, including school districts, charter schools, and BOCES are encouraged to use this as a guide when developing their own local board policies for serving students in temporary housing.
NYSED’s McKinney-Vento Field Memo #01-2018 (March 2018) addresses the updated version of the Sample Local Education Agency McKinney-Vento Policy.
