Dec/Jan 2007Vol. 7, No. 9School Success and Child Welfare

Children involved with child welfare often experience low academic achievement, but there are steps that child welfare workers can take to promote school success for these children. Recent issues of the North Carolina Division of Social Services' Practice Notes and Training Matters focus on the educational needs of children in foster care and how child welfare professionals can work with schools to meet these needs. The newsletters cover such topics as handling confidentiality, forging strong relationships with teachers, using the Individual Education Plan, and empowering foster parents.
