Foster Youth Services Coordinating Program

The Contra Costa County Foster Youth Services Coordinating Program (FYSCP) supports the educational needs of children in foster care.               
The FYSCP program works collaboratively with local school districts, child welfare agencies, foster care agencies, probation, post-secondary institutions, caregivers, and community organizations with the goal of improving the educational gap for foster youth.

FYSCP GOALS

  • Advocating  for appropriate services and attending school-based intervention meetings.
  • Expediting the transfer of educational records.
  • Strengthening the collaboration among our partners. 

FYSCP TRAININGS

As part of CCCOE FYSCP's continued goal to provide technical assistance and professional development to districts and our community partners regarding the educational needs of foster youth, the Education Liaison will be providing trainings at the Contra Costa County Office of Education. Trainings are also offered to groups and/or individuals who submit a written request 4-6 seeks in advance. If you would like to submit a request for a training at your site or have any further questions, please contact Yvonne Beals.
