Date: 2/27/2019
Time: 2:00 ET

On Wednesday, February 27, 2019, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. ET, the Office of Safe and Supportive Schools (OSSS), formerly known as the Office of Safe and Healthy Students within the U.S. Department of Education (ED), and its REMS TA Center will host a Webinar on the topic of supports for homeless and displaced students and families during and after emergencies that impact school district, school and campus communities. Christina Dukes, from ED’s National Center on Homeless Education will also join the Webinar, which will provide a basic overview of why this topic is important and insight that can help state and local education and emergency management agencies understand how they can support students and families displaced from homes, communities, and school settings as a result of natural disasters or other emergencies. This event will also feature a dedicated 15-minute Q&A session during which presenters will field questions from participants.
