Supporting English Learners (ELs) Experiencing Homelessness: An ARP-HCY Implementation Spotlight
The availability of ARP-HCY funding has increased the capacity of state education agencies (SEAs) and local education agencies (LEAs) to identify children and youth experiencing homelessness and provide them with wraparound services. SEAs and LEAs are required to contract and collaborate with community-based organizations to become part of a comprehensive system of support for children and youth experiencing homelessness who are members of historically underserved populations. In this NCHE webinar, we are joined by panelists from Bastrop Independent School District (BISD) and will explore the challenges faced by ELs experiencing homelessness, strategies for partnership and collaboration, and promising practices to sustain wraparound supports beyond the availability of ARP-HCY funding.
