A Pre-Conference Preview

Whether you are new or "seasoned," NAEHCY's pre-conferences offer unique, unparalleled professional development at a critical time for school districts and communities. Our full day of pre-conferences will help you dive into critical topics with comprehensive content and ample time for discussion.

Are you new to homeless education and related topics?

We offer pre-conference sessions designed to help you get the basics under your belt before the full conference. Each of the pre-conference sessions listed below serves as a survey course on homelessness and early childhood, K-12, higher education, and unaccompanied youth. Attending the pre-conferences will help you get the most from the more specialized sessions during the full conference.

  • McKinney-Vento 101 in the ESSA Era
