ESSA will require schools to report homeless student graduation rates for first time ever
from Education World
As the homeless student population grows year after year, support services to this subset of challenged youth have not grown to keep up. The new education legislation to go into effect in August will, for the first time, hold schools responsible for reporting graduation rates of homeless students beginning next school year. While most of the Every Student Succeeds Act's provisions will not go into effect until the 2017-2018 school year, including homeless youth into data reporting will begin immediately next year with the ESSA's update to the McKinney-Vento Act.
