Legislation to Better Serve California’s Foster Youth

Sacramento, CA

Last week, the California State Senate voted approval of SB233, a measure aimed to identify the specific educational records that those who serve as caregivers for foster youth may access, even when the caregiver is not the legal educational rights holder for the child. 

For example, when the child is in residential treatment, and the caregiver does not hold the child’s educational rights, it can impede the caregiver’s and school’s effort to provide educational support. 

Foster students historically have the lowest graduation rate and the highest dropout rate of any demographic. SB 233 would update existing education statutes related to foster student’s education records to include all caregivers responsible for the education or case management of the student.
