Practical means to identify McKinney-Vento students 2. Connecting McKinney-Vento families to early childhood programs 3. Replicable strategies to improve high school graduation rates for McKinney-Vento students, including using data for early intervention. 4. Best practices for collaboration across federal programs, including Title IA, IC, ID, Title III, and 21st Century. An attorney who specializes in McKinney-Vento and two seasoned McKinney-Vento liaisons will share their tips and answer your questions.
