The Texas Blueprint: Transforming Education Outcomes for Children and Youth in Foster Care.

In 2010, the Supreme Court of Texas issued an Order Establishing the Education Committee of the Permanent Judicial Commission for Children, Youth and Families (Children’s Commission). This order was the Texas response to mandates in the Fostering Connections to Success and Increasing Adoptions Act of 2008. The Education Committee collaborated to create recommendations to improve educational outcomes of children and youth in foster care. The recommendations fell into eight categories:

  • Judicial Practices
  • Data and Information Sharing
  • Multi-Disciplinary Training
  • School Readiness
  • School Stability and Transitions
  • School Experience, Supports, and Advocacy
  • Post-Secondary Education
  • Future Collaboration
