Education

Foster Youth Services Program (FYS) is a program through the Santa Barbara County Education Office, which works in collaboration with foster liaisons in each district in the county to ensure that the educational, physical, social and emotional needs of foster youth are identified, to determine gaps in educational and social support services and provide those services, directly or through referrals to collaborative partners.

The program also seeks to facilitate the completion and timely transfer of school records, improve students’ academic achievement, reduce truancy, dropout rates and delinquent behavior, and provide advocacy to promote the best interest of foster youths throughout the county.
