What is the San Diego County Office of Education, Foster Youth Services Coordinating Program?
Under AB 854 The California Department of Education (CDE) administers the Foster Youth Services Coordinating Programs (FYSCPs) through county offices of education (COEs) to provide support services to foster children who suffer the traumatic effects of displacement from family and schools and multiple placements in foster care. These FYSCPs have the ability and authority to ensure that health and school records are obtained to establish appropriate placements and coordinate instruction, counseling, tutoring, mentoring, vocational training, emancipation services, training for independent living, and other related services. The FYSCPs increase the stability of placements for foster children and youth. These services are designed to improve the children's educational performance and personal achievement, directly benefiting them.
