The Foster Youth Services (FYS) Department is a group of school professionals that are experts in the both educational and social service systems.  We have created a program designed to serve the unique educational, social and emotional needs of children in foster care by building assets that make them resilient and ultimately successful.  FYS began operating in 1973 in SCUSD.  Our program has successfully served thousands of foster youth, markedly improving their school performance and increasing their chances for success later in life.
