Foster Care

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) emphasizes the educational stability of vulnerable students, including those in foster care. Children in foster care face many educational barriers, including traumatization, high mobility, and undiagnosed behavioral and health conditions.

The Ohio Department of Education provides guidance on the various components of Foster Care. Please see the links below.
