The new school year has begun, and CASA volunteers have the opportunity to make a concrete difference in their CASA child’s education. The Children’s Commission recently released a resource letter delving into important reminders related to school-based advocacy for children and youth in foster care when it comes to:
- who makes education-related decisions,
- the importance of school stability,
- roles and responsibilities, and
- local points of contact.
Also, remember to check out Texas CASA’s recently updated Educational Advocacy Guidebook and Pocket Guide!
