McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Program
The Norwalk-La Mirada McKinney-Vento program is designed to address the problems that families and youth in transition face 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 students in transition attending the Norwalk-La Mirada School District.
Our Goals are to help students in transition overcome barriers of immediate enrollment, transportation to school of origin, and school stability. To offer significant academic and social learning opportunities at after school programs in a safe and healthy environment. To ensure student success by providing the necessary tools to graduate and peruse higher education.
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. Unaccompanied child or youth who is not in the physical custody of a parent or guardian. Families living in emergency or transitional shelters. Migratory families who qualified as homeless because they are living in the circumstances described.
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.
