Bridges | Advocating for School Issues
06/17/2020 | 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Type of Class
Many youth in foster care struggle both academically and behaviorally in the school environment because of the trauma they experienced, changing schools too often, missing too much school or sometimes never going to school before they came into foster care. All of these factors impact a child’s ability to learn. Many youth in foster care are in special education or should be receiving special education services. Come hear from an educational liaison from the San Diego County Office of Education on how to best advocate and support the child(ren) in your home so they can feel successful in the school environment.
