Each year we try to do more to help foster kids transition into adult life successfully. We made it easier for them to obtain their records to get ID and drivers licenses so that they can get jobs. Many of these kids have individual education plans while in public school. Schools typically purge that part of the record upon graduation, but for foster kids who could qualify for additional help, those records are critical. We need to make sure young people have access to their records so if they need further help they can receive it.
