Leverage current collaboration and investments to align services, outcomes, accountability, and resources to achieve educational equity for children and youth in foster care by the year 2027. The goal of this effort is to ensure that children and youth in foster care achieve educational outcomes at the same rate as their general student population peers. This collaboration should include an analysis of where the foster care continuum could align with the homeless youth continuum.
DCYF, OSPI, and WA Achievement Council will convene a work group and report to the legislature by December 31, 2018 with analysis and recommendations.
