Best Interest Determination
ESSA requires that State Education Agencies (SEAs) provide assurances that: students in foster care enroll or remain in the school of origin unless there is a determination that it is not in his or her best interest to attend the school of origin. The best interest determination must be based on all relevant factors, including appropriateness of the current educational setting and proximity to the school in which the child is enrolled at the time of placement.
