Proposed new policy, JFAAB, "Students Experiencing Homelessness and Students in Foster Care," is before the Board for First Reading.
The policy brings CMS into compliance with the federal Every Student Succeeds Act, which includes amendments enacted in 2015 that are intended to strengthen and improve the education of children and youths experiencing homelessness and to establish protections for students in foster care. CMS has ongoing programs that were put in place under the McKinney Vento Homeless Assistance Act and the Fostering Connections Act that are designed to address the educational stability of homeless students and students in foster care. This new policy memorializes the Board's ongoing commitment in these areas and documents the expectations of the Board for professional development and partnering with community agencies.
This policy was reviewed by the Policy Committee on April 17, 2017 and was unanimously approved for First Reading by the Board.
The Charlotte-Mecklenburg School District website (WWW.CMS.K12.NC.US) is in the process of
