M. Mažvydas Lithaunian Heritage School is an informal educational institution for expatriate Lithuanians. This type of school is fueled by the enthusiasm of families and teachers. Typically, these schools are run by a committee of parents, who find teachers, rent a space, financially support the workings of the school, manage the school, etc. See: Švietimo Tarybos įstatimai (Board of Education Guidelines).
The children divide themselves into groups by age and teacher. The teachers work with the groups, teaching the lessons. They create lesson plans following the U.S. Lithuanian American Community Education Council guidelines and textbooks and drawing from their own knowledge and experiences. Parents must purchase textbooks, workbooks and writing implements.
