During these times of change and uncertainty, our goal is to provide helpful information to students in foster care and their fostering families. This webpage will be updated as needed with school and community resources.

Education and Foster Children and Youth
Students in foster care are some of the most educationally disadvantaged. The Foster Care and Education Program is dedicated to meet student’s unique educational needs through the collaboration with students, caregivers, schools, child welfare agencies and legal advocates.
Our program is designed to provide guidance and education on the rights of students in foster care, to work with each student’s school to increase the level of understanding of the student’s academic and emotional needs, and to advocate for equal access of resources afforded to their peers. Strengthening partnerships with child welfare and court systems are continuous endeavors.
