Point of Contact
Routine collaboration and joint decision making between education and child welfare partners is critical to the educational stability of youth in foster care. 
Education and child welfare partners will need to work together frequently regarding school placement best interest determinations (BIDs), transportation coordination, and enrollment and records transfers.
DCFS has appointed an education liaison to work internally with agency staff and externally with school systems to help facilitate registration, transportation, education plans and communication between schools, agency staff and families.  All Cuyahoga County school districts have identified a point of contact to address the needs of fostercare to ensure educational stability.
