3. Foster Care

  • Federal Programs mainly works with transportation regarding transporting those in Foster Care to their School of Origin (goal: keep consistency with students by keeping them in their current school building).  This has to be requested with the student's St. Louis County Case Worker and then approved by St. Louis County and ISD709 administration as both entities share in the cost of this transportation.
