    Foster Care Provisions under the Every Student Succeeds' Act (ESSA):
    The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) now has provisions for students in foster care. These provisions include involving LEAs (Local Education Agency) in “best interest” decision-making, appointing points of contact for the schools and child welfare agencies, new assurances and data reporting requirements, and a requirement for transportation policies and procedures. ESSA requires the education system to ensure children/youth in foster care have school stability and access to services comparable to other students. The foster care provisions went into effect on December 10, 2016.
