This course addresses the awareness of the issues for children of poverty and homeless children. Homelessness is on the increase in the United States   Being aware of the at-risk nature of these children as well as the interpersonal violence these children can directly or indirectly experience gives mediators a baseline understanding of the needs of the children.  Educational needs as well as social emotional needs are discussed.  Subtitle VII-B of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act (42 U.S.C. § 11431 et seq.; hereafter the McKinney-Vento Act), reauthorized in 2015 by Title IX, Part A of Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), ensures educational rights and protections for children and youth experiencing homelessness. The legislation for this ACT is explained and strategies for implementing it in a school district are reviewed.  The course ends with a review of all pertinent facts and efforts to ensure that children of poverty and homelessness are placed in limited risk situations.
