Grants to California LEAs and COEs for programs that make sure that children in foster care are getting the appropriate services in accordance with foster youth services plans so as to ensure that students will be academically successful. Grantees will make sure that students in foster care have appropriate placements and supportive services including instruction, counseling, tutoring, mentoring, vocational training, emancipation services, training for independent living, and other related services.

Grantees will:

- Establish ongoing collaboration with child welfare, probation, LEAs and other organizations to determine the proper educational placement of foster youth.
- Build capacity with LEAs, probation, child welfare, and other organizations for purposes of implementing school-based support infrastructure for foster youth intended to improve educational outcomes for foster youth.
- Coordinate local planning with LEAs, probation, child welfare to support development and implementation of both the county and LEA Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) to improve educational outcomes for pupils in foster care.
- Provide direct educational services for foster youth in LEAs or County-Operated Programs provided the school district has certified that such services cannot be provided or funded using other sources, including, but not limited to, LCFF, federal, state, or local funding.
- Establish policies and procedures that ensure the timely and appropriate educational placement, the establishment of individualized education plans and the transfer of records, transcripts, and other relevant educational information.
- Facilitate the coordination with local postsecondary institutions, including, but not limited to, community colleges or universities.

For this current year, FYSC Programs must submit an FYSC Program Plan in order to be eligible for an allocation of funding. The funding allocation formula can be found on the CDE FYS Funding Web page at The individual program amounts have been determined and approved by the Department of Finance.
