School Year 2020-21 Training Requirement

In order to meet the training mandates of the federal McKinney-Vento Act as reauthorized by the Every Student Succeeds Act, NYC DOE requires that School-Based Liaisons participate in annual professional development so they can better identify and meet the needs of children and youth experiencing homelessness.
