Embarking on what may be the most unique, challenging school year, in quite some time, can seem like a daunting climb. It may feel as if the ground is slippery and difficult to traverse. This reality is even more apparent for students in foster care. ADE’s Foster Care Education Program will be offering several professional development opportunities to equip LEA staff, child welfare staff, and foster youth organizations with the tools to inspire these kids up the hill.


Note: All of the listed trainings will be online webinars. Participants will need to register in EMS (the title of the training is the link to the individual training in EMS). The afternoon before the training, all registrants will receive email instructions to attend the webinar.
