Dispute Resolution

Occasionally families and schools may disagree over McKinney-Vento services. When a conflict occurs, both parties should work to resolve the dispute as quickly as possible. In these disputes, the responsibility of the local homeless education liaison is to act as advocate for the family, assisting them through the dispute process.

In cases where the dispute cannot be resolved at the local level, the Wyoming Department of Education has established an appeals process. Families may appeal school district decisions on McKinney-Vento eligibility, school selection, participation and transportation.
