Best Foot Forward referrals are accepted throughout the year on a rolling basis. While we try our best to accept as many students as possible, openings vary depending on caseloads and a referral could be waitlisted. Priority is placed on 3rd, 8th, and 9th-grade students.
Eligible students require the following:
1) Students in kindergarten through 12th grade, with priority given to 3rd, 8th and 9th grades.
2) Students with an open DCF case, living in Out-of-Home Placement:
a) Foster Home
b) Group Home
c) Relative (Not with mother or father)
3) Students must be attending a traditional, public school. No charter or alternative schools.
4) Because need exceeds capacity within our caseloads, eligibility does not guarantee enrollment.
