More Than a Student Information System: Effectively Tracking Students Experiencing Homelessness

Date of broadcast: Thu, 03/17/22

For schools nationwide, understanding the backgrounds and living situations of the students they serve is vital to providing adequate support.

Inaccurate data, missing data, or data that a Student Information System doesn’t store can create hurdles to support students’ needs. Not only does this impact a school district’s ability to stay compliant with the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act (M-V Act), it can hinder student achievement and stability.

In this webinar, attendees will learn about:

  • What state and federal data is required and why
  • How a lack of coordination between schools and community service partners can result in fragmented services
  • *What a school district’s SIS can and can’t track
  • *What is the impact of missing or inaccurate data
  • *How technology can make data collection simpler and more efficient
