Gatherings of Superintendents and Liaisons in Madison

Research No Comments

On May 17 there were two important gatherings among key stakeholders in Dane County’s “homeless education community.” First, a number of superintendents from around the region assembled to discuss homelessness in its various forms and to express their thoughts about engaging the issue. Afterward, a several local homeless liaisons led a session for 40-50 other liaisons from the area. They discussed research, best practice, and, perhaps most importantly, made progress in establishing cross-district collaborative arrangements in service of homeless students and families. I was lucky to be able to spend the first part of the day with them and am hopeful that their efforts will continue…for the ultimate benefit for the hundreds of homeless kids in our community.
