Foster Care & Education

Education Summit 

In February 2013, more than 200 court, child welfare, and education leaders met in Austin at Texas' first Foster Care and Education Summit and Texas took another step in its long-term initiative to improve how children and youth in foster care fare in schools. The Summit represented a new chapter in the initiative – bringing together a large group of multi-disciplinary stakeholders to raise awareness of the issue and to begin establishing connections among the courts, the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS), and local school districts.
