EdPASS ensuring brighter future for foster children

In addition to providing stability and a guiding hand, EdPASS education specialists help middle and high school students maintain their focus on education. Because of that guidance, EdPASS seniors have a more than a 92 percent graduation rate compared to a 50 percent graduation rate nationally among foster children.

“Because of their circumstances and the disruptions in their lives, these are kids who struggle on very high levels to achieve academic success,” said Edwin England, EdPASS coordinator. “We know if we can successfully shepherd each child through high school on to post-secondary that translates into a brighter future.”
