Overcoming Barriers to School Enrollment – In this session Jen Story, REP’s managing attorney, and Katie Haberman, a REP social worker, will provide parents/caregivers with an overview of their legal rights to school enrollment, along with practical strategies for ensuring that students are promptly enrolled in and given meaningful access to the school environment. In addition to covering enrollment protections for all students, this session will focus on unique enrollment rights for students who are living apart from their parents due to crisis situations, students and families who are homeless and/or living in unstable situations, and students in foster care.
