Each school district has an “AB 490” liaison – someone who is knowledgeable about foster youth issues and their rights to be enrolled into school immediately. This Foster Youth Liaison should be able to help with any issues that arise. Click here to find a list of Foster Youth Liaisons by School District.

Also, the County Office of Education has a Foster Youth Services office.
