The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) signed in 2015 contains protections for students in foster care that require collaboration between schools and child welfare partners. In Iowa, this means local school districts and DHS must work together to promote school stability and success for students in foster care.
More information can be found on the Iowa Department of Education’s website.
