Foster Youth

At AUSD, we understand the importance of helping our students in foster care to ensure they have equal access to a stable education.  With a growing population statewide of students in foster care, the need for education on the subject of foster care grows, as well.  The following links provide helpful information related to foster-care topics, such as student records, laws and college readiness, and some additional resources.  If you have questions, please contact our Child Welfare & Attendance office at 626-858-6168.  We are here to help you.
