Education Advocacy

Foster children's experiences before and during foster care can have real and devastating impacts on their education. Factors such as multiple school changes, developmental and cognitive barriers, high rates of school absenteeism and disciplinary issues often result in poor academic performance and high drop-out rates.
CASA volunteers are essential to the success of foster children achieving their academic goals. Once assigned to a child, CASA volunteers should ensure the child has been referred to the EPAC (Educational Programming, Assessment and Consultation) Unit. EPAC provides educational consultation to direct service providers (including the CASA program) to promote educational stability for foster children.
