Role of the Department in the Education of a Child or Young Adult


The Department promotes the academic achievement of a child or young adult by participating as a member of the team that performs the academic planning and goal setting for the child or young adult. The caseworker works collaboratively with the parent or legal guardian whenever appropriate; Tribes; the local school district and school officials; the substitute caregiver; the surrogate parent, if one is appointed; the CASA and attorney of the child or young adult; local school district foster care point of contact; and service providers involved in the case plan of the child or young adult, as appropriate, in order to ensure school enrollment and promote academic achievement.


The Department must verify that the child or young adult’s enrollment in a school program is permitted by Oregon law or other state law if the child or young adult is placed in another state through the Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children.
