Foster Youth Support

MUSD Foster Youth Support


With the passing of numerous bills related to education, foster children and youth have many rights, including: 

  • Support of an identified Educational Liaison within each school district
  • The right to immediate enrollment in school
  • Ability to remain in the school of origin despite moving out of the attendance area
  • Credit for full or partial coursework satisfactorily completed by the student
  • A waiver of district graduation requirements if the youth transferred schools after the second year of high school and is unable to graduate with his/her class due to credit deficiency
  • Transportation to the school of origin when determined by the educational rights holder to be in the best interest of the youth, and no other transportation options are available
