Foster Care & Student Success

The goal of United ISD is to provide administrators with useful information that will guide them in creating a positive educational experience for students in foster care.  The district wants campus administrators to be familiar with the complexities of the foster care system and the relevant laws and policies that influence a student in foster care’s educational experience.  The district wants to centralize foster care and education information while increasing awareness and promoting improved cross-system practices and partnerships that benefit students in foster care.  Working to achieve these goals, United ISD strives to fulfill the education provisions of the federal Fostering Connections to Success and Increasing Adoptions Act of 2008 that promote school stability and require coordination across child welfare and educational systems.
