Time for a statewide database to better serve foster youth | EdSource Today. Having worked with children in foster care I can attest data sharing is needed. While I understand that welfare workers want academic information about children, schools need to know which kids are in foster care to provide them adequate support. To date, the means by which the District learns which students are in foster care is practically non-existent. There is no way to get an a comprehensive accurate list of what student is in foster care. This data is updated annually at most. It is well know that the population of children in and out of foster can vary greatly in one year. I hope that this data sharing grows into something so that those professionals working with this group of children can get the accurate data to best meed the needs of these students.
