Quality Schools

Homelessness and Victimization

The Federal Programs section will conduct a webinar to discuss the changes under ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) for the McKinney-Vento and Foster Care programs. Please keep in mind these changes effect all school districts. It is highly recommended you have staff attend. The webinar will be recorded and available at a later date on DESE's recorded webinar page. The purpose of the webinar is to provide LEA Homeless and Foster Care Liaisons with current information concerning guidelines as they relate to the requirements as amended under ESSA.

Nonpublic Webinar

The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education will be hosting a webinar to discuss the Nonpublic Registration process including consultation and evaluation, professional development, and allocation procedures.  The online Nonpublic Registration system has been redesigned with a whole new look and functionality this year.  Both public and nonpublic schools are encouraged to participate to learn about the new registration system, the requirements of public schools during the registration process, and upcoming changes based on ESSA.
