Education, Social Work, and Transient Youth: Resources and guidance to ensure success of ESSA subgroups

Education is one of the key indicators of success and social mobility for all. Youth identified are part of the foster care system, homeless, identified as migrant, and/or adjudicated neglected or delinquent are required by federal and state statute to receive supports to ensure their successful transition and positive academic outcomes. Social workers who support these youth and their families will learn about the statutory requirements  for  these specific subgroups identified under the ESSA. Participants will also be provided with an overview of guidance and programs led by the PEC that reflect current best-practices aligned with federal and state statute. Lastly, participants will be given multiple opportunities to reflect on and share their own professional experiences in supporting youth in transition.
