US: Child Welfare Ideas from the Experts, #6: Requiring Educational-Vocational Specialists
Chronicle of Social Change – August 10, 2016
Require states to designate one educational-vocational specialist (EVS) in each child welfare agency in order to qualify for reimbursement under Title IV-E of the Social Security Act. The EVS would be responsible for assessing the individual challenges for any student in foster care, and connecting them with any resources or assistance that can help in the pursuit of employment or college.
