Foster Youth Services Coordinating Program
Technical Assistance Project - (TAP)

The Shasta County Office of Education provides technical assistance to the California County Offices of Education in regions 1,2,3,4,&6, to facilitate the implementation of AB 854 via county Foster Youth Services Coordinating Programs. Through support from the California Department of Education, we facilitate statewide, regional, and local communication, and coordination of program practices to build a systemic approach consistent to the needs of each county and every foster youth.

With the collaboration and inter-agency coordination of services with local child welfare offices, school districts, and community partners, our California foster youth will have improved graduation rates, improved school attendance, and increased school stability.

Every child deserves a champion – an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best they can possibly be.
