AB 1055 – Deletes Specific Requirements That Had To Be Met Before A Dependent Tribal Child Was Considered Foster Youth For Purposes Of The Local Control Funding Formula
Existing law defines “foster youth” for the purposes of a local control funding formula to include a dependent child of the court of an Indian tribe, consortium of tribes, or tribal organization who is the subject of the petition filed in the tribal court in accordance with tribal law, but only if the child also met state law standards of when a child is considered a dependent child of a juvenile court.
This bill eliminates the state standard requirement for purposes of defining foster youth. The definition of foster youth is expanded to include a child who is the subject of a voluntary placement agreement.
(AB 1055 amends Sections 42238.01, 48850, 48853.5, 49069.5, 49085, and 51225.2 of the Education Code.)
