Migrant Out-of-School Youth (OSY) Program


The Migrant Out-of-School Youth (OSY) Program of La Villa ISD is designed to identify and recruit OSY, high school-aged children not enrolled in school.  In addition, the Migrant Education Program will determine instructional and support services that will help improve the quality of life of  Migrant OSY.

The goal of the Migrant OSY Program is to ensure that all students have access to appropriate services based on identified needs. By conducting a needs assessment, the OSY Program can help determine services based on individual needs and provide a variety of services and opportunities for Migrant OSY on a regional basis to encourage and assist them in achieving their full potential.
