What educational services are available to foster children?

Many foster children attend public schools in the neighborhoods in which they reside. However, in order to maintain continuity and consistency for the children, some foster children will attend the schools they attended prior to becoming foster children or the schools that the foster children last attended.

Additionally, some foster children may qualify for special education and support services, which are available and must be provided through the schools. At times, a child's Individualized Education Plan ("IEP") will call for the child to attend a specific school placement at a non-public school ("NPS").
