2020-2021SY Regional Compliance Forums for
NC McKinney-Vento Homeless Liaisons

The 2020-2021SY Regional Compliance Forums for both LEAs and charter schools were held in late February through early March 2021.  Resources from those sessions are posted below.

Regional Compliance Forum

The appointed homeless liaison in an LEA and charter school is required to attend the compliance forum per U.S.C. § 11432(g)(1)(F)(ii) of the McKinney-Vento Act.

Making sure school districts are in compliance with the McKinney-Vento Act (i.e., ensuring that school personnel are identifying and enrolling students immediately, that services to students are being provided, and that barriers to homeless students receiving an education are being eliminated) is not always easy. The compliance forums allow for continued learning opportunities, including enriched discussions on the challenges with federal requirements. Discussions on the dispute policy, data collection process, and monitoring will be addressed.

The NCHEP 2020-2021SY McKinney-Vento Regional Compliance Forums are for ALL Homeless Liaisons, even if you attended the New Homeless Liaison Compliance Trainings held in September.

To better meet the needs of LEAs and charter schools, the Regional Compliance Forums for LEAs and charters schools are held separately. Please select the appropriate Compliance Forum for your LEA type and region.

Regional Compliance Forums are intended for the District Homeless Liaison only.  Please contact the State Coordinator’s office for approval of other staff to attend a compliance forum prior to registering.
