Going back to school after the summer break can be an exciting time for children and families alike.  It can also bring hard times on children and families facing adversities at home.  Foster children have their own unique set of experiences with school, including dealing with new schools, changing schools midyear, behavioral problems, being behind in schoolwork, and more.  We have compiled some great resources to learn more about helping foster children and families adjust to school.  Check them out!
