Youth in foster care face tremendous barriers to educational
success due to frequent disruptions in their home and school
placements. In order to address these obstacles, AB 490 provides
foster youth with the right to remain in their school of origin (if
doing so is in the youth’s best interests) for
the remainder of the school year when a child welfare or probation
agency moves them to a new placement. This policy brief outlines
the responsibilities of Child Welfare and Education with respect to
transportation, as well as the need for collaboration.
