The McKinney Vento/Out-of-School Youth Navigator will work in partnership with school Administrators, Student Support Teams, and other community partners within Mount Vernon High School (and across Skagit County) to ensure that homeless children and school-age youths are enrolled in school, and have full and equal opportunity to succeed academically or complete graduation. Once the McKinney Vento or Out-Of-School student is enrolled, the Navigator will identify additional readiness-to-learn supports needed, and will coordinate with school staff strategies and approaches to meet those critical needs. The Navigator acts as a liaison and/or broker to the resources necessary to improve academics and attendance, increase student resilience, school-bonding, and to increase positive behavior. The Navigator supports students’ whole self, determining individual supports that will meet the needs of each unique student. To that end the Navigator provides confidential, developmentally appropriate, and culturally competent interventions, services and supports to students and families. This position also works in partnership with community partners and other agencies to assure additional resources are available for students and families.
