Foster Care Training

The Office of Compulsory School Attendance Enforcement would like to invite individuals to register for Educational Stability of Students in Foster Care training on November 14, 2019 at the Vicksburg Convention Center.  This one-day event is designed to develop a true collaboration between Mississippi foster care points of contact who work with students placed under the supervision of the Mississippi Department of Child Protection Services (MDCPS). There will be engaging discussion related to the requirements of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), Point of Contact Responsibilities, and other state and federal guidelines.  Participants will also receive information from MDCPS regarding processes and procedures for students in care. The training will be led by the two state agency points of contact: Toni Kersh (MDE) and Cynthia Moore-Hardy (MDCPS), in collaboration with American Bar Association (Washington, D.C.).
