Essential Staff Training

McKinney-Vento Essential Staff Training Program

The McKinney-Vento Essential Staff Training Courses aim to equip all school personnel with professional development and training to heighten their awareness of, and capacity to respond to specific problems in the education of homeless children and youths (a requirement of the McKinney Vento Homeless Youth Act). 

Under a revised amendment to McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act and Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015, Federal law now requires that McKinney-Vento District Liaisons provide all school personnel with professional development and training to heighten their awareness of, and capacity to respond to, specific problems in the education of homeless children and youths. 

The McKinney-Vento Essential Staff Training Program helps to satisfy this requirement in an effective way, training each member of your staff in just 15 minutes. Failure to perform in accordance with these federally mandated requirements may result in state or federal compliance audits as well as put a school district’s Title I funding at risk. 

With this in mind, specific courseware is available for each staff position in any public district or charter. By educating every essential staff member in the school system, we are arming our homeless liaisons with additional ambassadors to ensure the educational excellence and success of our children, youth, and families experiencing homelessness.
