McKinney-Vento Program

McKinney-Vento Program

The Norwalk-La Mirada McKinney-Vento program is designed to address the problems that families and youth faced in enrolling, attending and succeeding in school.

Our Mission is to guarantee and implement the McKinney-Vento Act as mandate and all of its provisions for all of students in transition attending the Norwalk-La Mirada School District.

Our Goals are to help students in transition overcome barriers of enrollment and transportation to school of origin. To provide significant academic and social learning opportunities at after school programs in a safe and healthy environment. To increase reading and math scores on standardized test and improve school behavior and grades. To promote healthier lifestyles for the students and their families by providing social and health services requested by families.

Population Served

Sharing housing with other persons due to loss of housing or economic hardship. Living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, sheds, or camping grounds due to lack of alternative adequate accommodations.  Living in emergency or transitional shelters. Migratory families who qualified as homeless because they are living in the circumstances described and Foster Youth Services waiting for placement.

Services Offered

The McKinney-Vento Program include a one stop resource center, where families can receive community agency referrals according to their individual needs. Via our long standing Collaborative partnership with our local service providers we have developed a system of service delivery that cuts through the bureaucracy, so that families can get the services that they need when they need them.
