The San Diego County Office of Education’s Foster Youth and Homeless Education Services responds to, assists, and empowers all systems that support students who are in foster care or are homeless achieving academic success. Our programs are designed to prepare students to become successful, self-sufficient and independent adults.
We are funded by California Department of Education, The United States Department of Education as well as other funding sources.
The Foster Youth and Homeless Education Services Programs represent a partnership among San Diego County's key stakeholders focused on improving the educational outcomes of wards and dependents, ages 4 to 21, residing in licensed children's institutions, foster family agency and county foster homes as well as those students and families who are experiencing homelessness.
The Foster Youth Services Advisory Committee (FYSAC) in partnership with the Commission on Children, Youth and Families Education Committee represents school districts, community colleges, child welfare services, probation, juvenile court, advocacy agencies, and substitute care providers, who oversee the development and implementation of all programming. These agencies work in close partnership with us to strengthen and enhance services to students in foster care. In addition, we coordinate services and provide support to the McKinney Vento Homeless Education Liaisons and to homeless students and their families in our region’s school districts.
