Foster care is meant to be temporary until a permanent living arrangement is found. However, it can become permanent usually when a foster parent adopts or accepts permanent managing conservatorship of a child.
A student who is placed in the conservatorship of DFPS has the right to be enrolled immediately in school, without immunization or academic records, and birth certificate.
The student has two choices in deciding which school to attend once he/she is placed in conservatorship of DFPS:
Students in conservatorship of DFPS are entitled to transportation to and from the school of origin, if it is feasible, in the student's best interest, and requested by guardian.
If problems arise between the school and guardian or between districts, the guardian shall be referred to the school's foster care liaison. In the meantime, the student must be immediately enrolled or if enrolled, remain in school and receive transportation pending the outcome of the dispute resolution process.
