About Us

Education Services is part of the Permanency and Practice Support Division.

DCS-involved youth experience multiple risk factors that may keep them from succeeding in school. DCS is responsible for promoting education stability for youth in care and for incorporating strategies to improve educational outcomes. The Education Services Director and our team of Education Liaisons provide expertise to case managers, families, students, and schools to ensure the education needs of youth in care are met. As former teachers, administrators, and school social workers, they are a vital resource for parents/caregivers, schools, and DCS staff as we work together to champion student success.
