Compassionate Systems CA, First Star, and United Friends of the Children have developed a best practice guide for supporting foster youth who are in the graduating class of 2020. According to the California Department of Education’s online database Dataquest, there are approximately 4,000 foster youth who are seniors in high school. The goal of the informational resource is to ensure they graduate from high school and stay on track to enroll in college.
The guide also provides guidance on grades and credit recovery and offers specific steps to ensure the transition to college is on track, including the importance of helping high school seniors evaluate their financial aid award letters, identify campus-based foster youth-specific personnel and make a warm connection.
