Foster Care (ESSA requirements)

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) contains protections for students in foster care that require collaboration between schools and child welfare partners. In the state of Iowa, local school districts and the Department of Human Services work together to promote school stability and success for students in foster care.  

The point of contact for the Oskaloosa Community School District is Melanie Hatch, Director of Student Services.
