Foster Youth Services Coordinating Program

Foster Youth Services Coordinating Program

The mission of the Foster Youth Services Coordinating Program (FYSCP) is to provide support services to foster children and youth living with their birth families but involved with child welfare. FYSC Programs have the ability and authority to ensure that health and school records are obtained to establish appropriate placements and coordinate instruction, counseling, tutoring, mentoring, vocational training, emancipation services, training for independent living, and other related services. These services are designed to improve foster children's educational performance and personal achievement.

Under Assembly Bill 490 Foster Youth have the right to:

  • Access the same opportunities to meet academic achievement standards including access to the same academic resources, services and extracurricular and enrichment activities as other students.
  • School stability by ensuring that they remain in their school of origin for the duration of the school year whenever possible.
  • Immediate, proper educational enrollment and placement regardless of available school and/or immunization records. 
  • Timely transfer of students and their records when a change of schools occurs.
  • Receive credit for full or partial coursework.
  • Not be penalized for absences due to placement changes, court appearances, or related court ordered activities.
