Advanced Eligibility and Need  – Engaging Families in the Enrollment Process

Join us for this robust discussion around determining Eligibility and Need factors and their relationship to successful enrollment, engagement and attendance.

This seminar is different, rather than a step-by-step review of enrollment practices, this highly interactive seminar asks you to bring your questions (and be willing to share your best practice!) regarding the more complicated nuances of the less common cases relating to Eligibility and Need. The presentation will help guide all in attendance through a deep dive into the regulations, enabling you to interpret, understand and execute in even the most uncommon circumstances, all in the name of supporting the families we proudly serve.

 Topics include:

  • A review of recent Management Bulletin Language and how you are implementing at your agency
  • Parent involvement and its relationship to enrollment
  • Determining Family Size, including multi-generation parenting considerations
  • Determining income of all types  
  • Attesting to the reasonableness of community standards
  • CPS referrals and supporting their attendance 
  • ACES resources and how they can support enrollment plans
  • Homelessness and policies to support the navigation of enrollment 
  • Variable and un-predictable schedules and strategies to navigate successfully 
  • Seeking employment and the voluntary update
  • Vocational goals and what to consider when enrolling 
  • Supporting a Families right to lower their fees
  • Supporting Attendance Consistency 
  • Discussing how your agencies policies for attendance begin at determining E and N
  • Addressing the barriers that lead to chronic absences
