This Toolkit is designed to assist school districts in meeting the promise of LCFF for our foster youth. First, the Toolkit lays a foundation for school districts by providing comprehensive information on the education rights of foster youth along with step-by-step procedures to ensure foster youth receive the full benefit of laws designed to protect them. Second, the Toolkit provides easy-to-use implementation tools to help school districts move beyond this foundation of legal compliance to engagement in transformative best practices that will enable foster youth to achieve their college and career dreams.
