Non-Regulatory Guidance: Ensuring Educational Stability for Children in Foster Care
U.S. Departments of Education (ED) and Health and Human Services (HHS) provided this joint guidance as a key tool for educational and child welfare agencies to use as they embark on establishing new partnerships and implementing the new provisions of the law. In addition to clarifying the statutory requirements, the guidance provides recommendations for SEAs, LEAs, and CWAs and highlights promising practices from the field for agencies to consider as they move toward implementation by December 10, 2016.
