About Us

The Education Unit is actively working with community agencies to minimize the barriers to collaborate and develop relationships that share information in an effort to jointly address the educational needs of foster children. Our Goals are to improve the learning opportunities and academic outcomes for foster children. To ensure that each child has:
  • The right to remain in their School of Origin.

  • The right to immediate School Enrollment, even without school and immunization records.

  • The right to attend school in the least restrictive environment.

  • The right to partial credit for coursework successfully completed

  • The right to due process in suspension or expulsion (No child can be asked to be picked up from school for poor behavior without appropriate suspension paperwork.)

  • (Youth living in group homes cannot be enrolled in Non Public Schools without an IEP.)
