We work with the School District to prevent disruptions to a child's education when they are placed in DHS care. We also identify and remove educational barriers for children in the child welfare system.
Our Education Support Center representatives, known as ESC liaisons, address education-related problems a student in DHS care may be having, including:
- Academic problems.
- Attendance barriers and truancy.
- Transportation to and from school.
- Support for children with special education needs.
