Foster Youth Services Coordinating Program 

Equitable educational outcomes for youth in foster care in Los Angeles County

What is Foster Youth Services Coordinating Program (FYSCP)? The LACOE FYSCP provides support services for students who experience the traumatic effects of being removed from their home, school instability, and multiple placements in foster care. Our goal is to build capacity and increase multi-sector collaboration amongst child welfare, probation, education, and community agencies to improve educational outcomes for students in foster care. We place Educational Counselors in offices across the county in partnership with the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), Probation, and Edelman Children’s Court. Program Specialists are assigned cohorts of school districts to establish regional learning networks designed to address challenges and implement solutions to support districts in meeting the needs of students in foster care.
