Distance Learning for Highly Mobile Student Populations
The highly mobile student population includes youth in foster care, on probation, who are homeless, who migrate, are newcomers to the US, live in military families, and students who are mobile for many other reasons. Highly mobile students can often be difficult to serve because of their school instability, system involvement, trauma they have suffered, learning English as a second language, and many other needs. For example, students in foster care change schools an average of 8 times while in care, loosing up to 6 months of their education with each move; they are impacted academically as well as social/emotionally as they have to move from home to home. Addressing the needs of highly mobile students requires thoughtful policies around enrollment/disenrollment, school stability, records sharing, issuing partial credits, ensuring children receive equity access to academic resources including special education supports and services, addressing trauma and social/emotional needs, and supporting them through graduation. Utilizing the lessons learned through a CCEE network focused on foster youth, attendees will hear about best practices utilized by six districts in LA county to address the needs of youth in foster care.
