Qualification
The Round Rock Independent School District Foster Care Program office is committed to ensuring that all children in foster situations have the opportunity to enroll in, attend, and succeed in school. “The general term “foster care” for education purposes includes all students in the managing conservatorship (legal custody) of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS).  This includes students placed by DFPS with a Kinship caregiver, when the child remains in the legal custody of Texas DFPS. The Texas Legislature only authorized TEA permission to collect the “foster care” status of students in Texas DFPS Managing Conservatorship. Students in foster care from other states must not be reported as foster care for PEIMS reporting purposes.”
