We commend the Legislature for working with the Governor in 2013 to create an education finance and accountability system that supports the educational needs of students in foster care. To ensure that the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) benefits foster youth in the manner intended, it is critical that California’s Foster Youth Services (FYS) program be aligned with the LCFF and funded at a level sufficient to support all of our State’s foster youth.
