Laws Relating to the Education of Students

Ramona Unified School District provides a variety of education-related services to foster youth. In accordance with Assembly Bill 490, RUSD makes certain that foster youth living in group homes or foster homes immediately enroll in school and are in appropriate education placement and receiving needed services. RUSD is responsible for the tracking and transferring of school records upon enrollment, adhering to the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) guidelines, reviewing AB 216 eligibility, and connecting students to school and community-based services. The goal of RUSD is to support the positive academic and social-emotional outcomes of every one of our foster youth.
