Targeted to school building and district staff and community-based organizations, this training is designed to help participants gain an understanding of student support programs and services, such as Headstart/ECEAP, ELL, SPED, 504, and CTE. Learn how these programs can holistically support students experiencing homelessness in tandem with the McKinney-Vento program and other community supports. Utilizing a targeted universalism model, speakers and presenters cover real life scenarios on how we can better serve students and their families who may identify as BIPOC, LGBTQIA, immigrant and refugee, and those living with disabilities.
Guest speakers: Angel Graves, Whole Child, Whole Day Care Coordinator at the Center School, Seattle Public Schools; Ramona Hattendorf, Director of Advocacy at ARC King County; Boo Balkan Foster, Native Education Teacher in Seattle Public Schools; Stephanie Greene, Drop In Coordinator, Oasis Youth Center Tacoma. Presenters: Kayla Blau, Writing Consultant, Building Changes; Joey Heilman, Education Strategy Specialist, Building Changes; and Samie Iverson, Senior Manager of Education Strategy, Building Changes.
