Foster Youth

    Every student in our district is ensured access to the same opportunities for academic achievement and support, including children and youth in foster care. Foster youth have educational rights established through Assembly Bills 167, 216, and 490 to help eliminate barriers to education and ensure school stability. Madera Unified strives to meet the unique educational needs of foster youth by providing advocacy and other support services designed to encourage the academic and personal success of all students in foster care.
