Foster Care & Education

The Texas Blueprint 

Transforming Education Outcomes for Children and Youth in Texas Foster Care

In 2010, the Supreme Court of Texas issued an Order Establishing the Education Committee of the Children's Commission. The Education Committee — a high level group of court, education, and child welfare decision-makers — created a collaborative initiative and produced a roadmap for us to follow, the Texas Blueprint: Transforming Education Outcomes for Children and Youth in Foster Care.

The Education Committee recognized that when the state acts as parent, everyone is responsible. Through improved communication and collaboration, the court, child welfare, and education systems are better equipped to meet the educational needs of students in care.
