ALA’s staff works to provide resources and support to Students in Transition as soon as they are identified. This may include help providing uniforms, school supplies, and basic toiletries, as well as other forms of support. Needs will be identified on a case-by-case basis. For more information, contact our McKinney-Vento District Liaison, Kimberly Saffell, at 480-420-2101.
Parents should contact their child’s current school and explain the situation. Obtain any records the school has (including immunization records) and provide the school with a new address, if possible. Also, enroll your child in school as soon as possible, to expedite the process and avoid problems.
We want to do our part in easing the educational burden of our students and their families. To see how ALA can benefit your student, schedule a campus tour today. We’d love to show you around and answer whatever questions you might have about the programs we offer. We look forward to meeting you!
