Off-Grounds Schools

Since the passage of Assembly Bill 490, children and youth in foster care can choose to attend their last school of origin or their “home school.” A child’s county social worker may decide it is to the benefit of the child to stay in the school they attended last. The children and youth who reside at Children’s Receiving Home may be attending a school in one of several school districts represented in Sacramento County. For CRH, this means maintaining a fleet of vans and cars to transport and a transportation team to drive them.
