This presentation summarizes findings from a statewide survey of McKinney-Vento liaisons conducted by Schoolhouse Washington, a project Building Changes, in April 2020. The purpose of the survey was to learn how students and families experiencing homelessness are being affected by the COVID-19 crisis and to help identify their needs. Responses were received from liaisons in 74 school districts across 32 counties who collectively serve nearly 17,000 students experiencing homelessness in Washington State.
